We work to build upon our successes in order to deliver the best teaching and learning environment in Oregon.
We celebrated our best ever graduation rate. This historic graduation rate has increased nearly 14 percentage points in the last seven years alone.
The Class of 2018 received more than $13 million in college scholarship offers, includes two National Merit Finalists and more than 340 students who earned honors diplomas.
Our schools are home to rich music, physical education and art programs at all levels and we have incredible staff members delivering content to our students.
This year alone, our staff members were named:
- School librarian of the year
- Art teacher of the year
- Social studies teacher of the year
- Finalist for the Presidential Math Award (Monet Biancucci, pictured here).
Beyond rigorous academic programs, our schools are also home to state and national award-winning activities including: newspaper, band, speech and debate, robotics, DECA, Future Farmers of America, Future Business Leaders of America and more. This year, our students also earned individual or team state titles in volleyball, swimming, track and field, cross-country, baseball, wrestling, swimming, golf, tennis and more.
In all, 53 percent of our middle and high school students are engaged in at least one extra-curricular activity.
Our schools also connect students with meaningful experiences beyond academics. Through community service efforts and an emphasis on kindness, empathy and social emotional learning in the classroom, we are helping all of our students become thriving citizens.
