Hello! My son has the choice of two middle schools in Aloha Oregon. I would love feedback on them! They are: Five Oaks Middle School, and Huber Park Middle School. Thanks!

You can check out school info on the Beaverton School District's website. Most regulars on PDX C-D are not as familiar with Aloha schools IMO though there are some regulars here in Beaverton. Aloha schools get mixed reviews by the people I know that live in Washington County. PM if you like.

This area can be a little confusing. The Beaverton School District includes all of the City of Beaverton as well as some areas of unincorporated Washington County like Aloha, Bethany, and Raleigh Hills. All schools in the district are referred to as Beaverton Schools whether they are in the incorporated or unincorporated areas. The district has about 40K students.

Aloha-Huber Park is a K-8 school. They have a two-way immersion program. Kids who have attended prior to middle school have the option of staying for the 6-8 years, or they can attend Five Oaks. If a child is outside the attendance boundary, they can attend if selected through a lottery. The lottery has already happened for the 2015/16 school year. I'm not sure what happens if a child moves into their boundary just before the 6th grade year. If that's your situation, you may want to double check to be sure you have a choice.

Five Oaks is not in the Aloha area, it's near the Waterhouse neighborhood in the City of Beaverton. Five Oaks doesn't have a lot of info available on their school site or at great schools. It seems to have poor ratings as compared to Aloha-Huber Park though.

Here is an Oregonian report that should be helpful. The Beaverton School District site has more information on feeder schools too. There is some quality disparity between the 12 high schools in the district and if you plan on staying, it's good to know which high school is associated with the middle school you chose.
