Findley Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

As a parent and volunteer in the Beaverton School Disrict for many years, I speak from experience when saying Findley Elementary has a reputation of being a very high-performing school over many years. Many families move to the surrounding neighborhood so their children can attend this great public school!

Love this school!! My son loves going to school, he learns a lot at school (No extra tutoring outside school time) all in a FUN way!!! He never felt pressure

The school is rated high as the parents are pushing the kids, thereby pushing the test scores. This is a highly affluent and book-smart area, with kids going to many regular tutoring or classes or home "before/after-schooling" from young. Any school's state test scores will be 10/10 with such students.

Findley's test scores are great but they represent the school demographics and the corresponding pressure for academic performance from the parents representing the majority of that demographic. As said by other reviewers, most students take outside tutoring and attend Saturday classes, leaving no room for other activites such as sports or simply enjoying life and developing interpersonal skills. This pressure and the school's strange rules about "no winners" doesn't prepare kids for real life. There are better schools nearby and even if you live in the Findley school district, you can request administrative transfers through the Beaverton School District to either Bonny Slope or Terra Linda. Terra Linda would be probably easier to get in. Even though Terra Linda's scores are not as high as Bonny Slope's, Terra Linda offers programs that are customized to each kid's ability such as IXL for math or Accelerated Reader for reading. By the way, these comments are based on comparing notes between parents from Findley and Terra Linda.

Findley is a good school and teachers are really good. In my experience, the reason the school excels academically and students are up to 3 grades above grade level is because most parents make their children put in lots of extra efforts beyond what is taught at school. Outside tutoring (Kumon, Brainchild, Mathnesium etc.) is a norm. Many have been tutored from pre-school onward and come in the school above grade level. So if your child isn't a prodigy or does not get lots of outside help, it is like any other good school. (See other reviews) Pressure to be above-grade level is felt by all kids, and bright children who don't get the extra tutoring and are at grade level can feel inferior. It is a great school as long as you are aware of this and can keep your child feeling secure no matter whether of not your child gets extra tutoring.
