First 3+ acre properties are very hard to find. Our urban growth management is structured to preserve economically viable agricultural units.

Without being specific about a school or the source of the rating we don't really know how to answer. The Oregon Schools website has demographic and economic (school lunches) data, that may provide the answers you are seeking.

Three+ acres! Is that even possible? Are you finding much on the market with that lot size?

Is is mostly just due to ESL students not testing well, or are the schools really that bad? I know it's not all about the test scores. This is stressful!
from looking thru the 2014 testing scores, you can definitely see a major difference between Hillsboro schools and Beaverton schools. It isn't all about test scores, but it is a good indicator of the education that the children are receiving.

I did a quick search and there are a few homes on 3+ acres west of the river but it also depends on your budget. My last client had school as a top priority and we ended up finding a home around Finley Middle school (NW Portland area). I personally like that area and the schools, but I am biased as I grew up there
