I personally have had good experiences with this school. My only complaint, however, is that the classes are a little too large for my liking. Last year, my baby brother had 31 kids in his 2/3 combo class, my little brother had 31 kids in his 4th grade class, and my younger brother had 38 kids in his fifth grade class!! 38!? Seriously!? How can a teacher handle that many students by themselves? All classes from 2nd to 6th grades had more than 30 students in them. After reading reviews from other schools on here, I agree that if you want your child to have a good public school education, Oregon is hands down one of the worst states in the country for this, class size wise. My little brother has 28 kids in his fifth grade class this year, but it is still unacceptable. If they were my kids, I would pull them out and either homeschool them, send them to a private school, or move to a different state. Other than these, I have had nothing but good experiences at this school. I was welcomed whenever I would pick my baby brother up from their after school Champions program. Overall, I have had good experiences here, but the class sizes have a lot to be desired.

Last year we moved here from out of state. All 3 kids were in Tobias. They enjoyed their teacher and class. The new principal, Mr. Bekken seems good. My kids all really enjoyed their class and teacher. One of my children had Mrs Maxwell and loved her and her class. Unfortunately she retired this year.

We love Tobias!!! We have a second grader and our kinder starting this fall. The teachers have been amazing ( Herzog and Walker) thus far. Mr. Callaway is very invested in the kids and continues to provide a strong support for both teachers and students. The PTO is tirelessly dedicated to giving additional resources to the kids such as Box top collections and the Tiger Trek. I love the diversity of the school and feel that all kids are treated fairly regardless if the socio economic class which at times can be lacking in other schools with higher incomes.

I really am shocked that Tobias has such a low rating here! My oldest is entering 4th grade this coming fall, and I couldn't be more pleased with a school. It has been a major challenge to keep her properly challenged in her academics, and every single year her teachers have stepped up to the plate. The school has always been very responsive whenever I've had an issue to discuss with them, and I love how willing her teachers have been to work as closely (or not) with me as I prefer to make sure she gets the best education possible.
