I'm a former student. The building is great and the teachers are fine. The school colors are cute and the mascot is a dragon. A lot of the reviews say that a lot of students are tutored outside of school. I'd say that's somewhat true but isn't the whole story. This school has a high Asian population and some of these immigrant parents might send their kids to Kumon, but a lot more of them also teach their kids to read and do math before they start school and outside of school so that they're somewhat above grade level. The white students also come from well-educated families and this school belong to the most privileged ZIP code in Oregon. However, there was always a separate advanced math class when I went there, so it's not as if everyone is a super genius. Most students learn according to grade level. The environment encourages kids that aren't academically inclined to do better at school. There was also never any bullying when I went here.

Scholls Heights Elementary; what can I say? My daughter is my most precious one and sending her to Kindergarten was a tough day. She ran to the bus while Mama cried on the corner. She is thriving. In large part to her teacher, Michelle Harlow, who is absolutely incredible. She LOVES every single one of those kids like they're her own and it is evident. I don't know what the atmosphere was like last session, with the prior principal, but our current principal clearly has an attitude that fun, hard work and diligence are part of learning for the kids at her school. I have yet to meet a staff member that doesn't care, or isn't looking out for the best interests of all of the kids. They are so welcoming, loving and kind. Thank you Scholls Heights for being such a great learning environment for my girl! I don't know WHY someone says the front desk isn't respectful, but I have had many interactions with them and they are ABSOLUTELY fabulous and encouraging.

My son attended this school last year and we moved this year and to our surprise he did not do well at the test for his grade level in other state. JW always told they taught at a higher grade level and to my surprise they did not!!!

We had such high hopes. The school has a lot going for it, if you are the right kind of child and the right kind of parent (and you are rich). But if you aren't, you are best to go elsewhere. The shine has worn off and we have chosen to transfer to another school.
