    For grades 2-6, testing will begin in San Andreas at 9:00 am on Monday, April 20 and continue at the same time each day through Friday, April 24th unless the student completes all testing before that. Parents do not need to remain on campus during testing, but should return to pick up their children by noon. The tests are untimed, so your student may be ready to go before or after this time.
    For grades 7, 8 and 11, testing will begin in San Andreas at 12:30 pm on Monday, April 20 and continue at the same time each day through Friday, April 24th unless the student completes all testing before that.

    Please make sure your child is rested and has a good breakfast each day and brings water with them. Snacks will be provided during the day between tests.

    Please do not bring any electronic devices such as cell phones, computers or calculators to testing.  Headphones will be provided, but you may bring your own headphones if you like.

    Testing at the Ione site will begin on Monday, April 27 and follow a similar schedule with grades 3-6 in the morning and grade 7, 8 and 11 in the afternoon.

  • ASVAB for 10th, 11th, & 12th Graders
    Here is a GREAT OPPORTUNITY to take one of the leading career exploration assessments.  Want to find out what your strengths are?  Want to gather information as to some possible career choices?  

    Mountain Oaks students have an opportunity to take the ASVAB assessment.  It is proctored by the military for entrance screening, but it’s so much more.  It actually gives you an opportunity to see what your strengths and weaknesses might be in the career fields.  It’s pretty difficult these days to decide a career, so why not take an assessment and receive great feedback to help you in your choices?  If you are interested in the military, here’s your chance to get started.  If not, please don’t shy away.  You can use this assessment for your own personal knowledge, or to get ready for college.  Mountain Oaks will not release any information to military recruiters!! You need to sign up with Janice either by phone or email (754-0532 ext. 2245 or

  • Yearbook 2014-2015
    We are taking orders for the 2014-2015 yearbook.  This year, we will only be offering hardcover yearbooks.  This is a better deal, because we get 30 more pages and the price is about the same for hardcover as we paid for a softcover last year.  Families have the option to order online at or you can order through the school. Orders must be placed by 8/4/15 (no exceptions). Students may pay an additional $4.95 to have their yearbook personalized.  The yearbooks will be ready to pick up on 9/1/15.  
    We still need photos for most of the school events.  We would love to have support from our families and students by helping us get photos together.  The yearbook company we are using this year allows us to have parents and students  upload photos to their site for the school to use on the yearbook.  To upload the photos please visit: and type in Mountain Oaks School in the "Search for your School" field. Parents, family members, seniors and friends will also be able to upload the Senior Notes to the yearbook website.  Or, you can bring in your camera card or send pictures via email to me at or post them on Facebook or Instragram using #MountainOaks.  We would even love to have students' selfies at the school with their friends.
