Mission Statement:
South Eugene High School strives to be a caring and supportive community that actively participates with students as they grow and develop as individuals and as lifelong learners in an increasingly complex world.
Program Description:
South Eugene is a well established and highly regarded high school serving students in grades 9–12. Students and staff take great pride in the sheer number of exceptional opportunities available at our open-campus school. Our rigorous and vibrant curriculum includes advanced science and math courses, strong literature offerings, relevant experiences in the social studies, and a variety of fine, applied and performing arts, in addition to health and physical education classes. Our campus is located near the University of Oregon and Lane Community College, which provide easy access to additional academic opportunities. SEHS students also participate in a multitude of clubs and a full athletic program at the 6A level.
School Highlights:
  • Our reputation for academic excellence includes a great variety of Advanced Placement courses — in math, science, English, social studies and foreign languages — for which SEHS is recognized statewide and nationally
  • Successful athletic program competing at the top 6A level, plus a student clubs program of approximately 40 interest-based groups ranging from sports to chess to dance to multicultural issues to robotics and more
  • Outstanding fine, applied and performing arts programs: Students interested in music and theater thrive at South, as do those interested in fine arts, culinary arts, advanced computer skills and business/marketing
  • Award-winning Counseling and Career Center; approximately 85% of SEHS graduates go on to college — 65% to four-year universities and another 20% to two-year colleges
  • SAT, ACT and OSA test scores well above state and national averages; these have resulted in SEHS being one of few high schools to consistently receive an annual rating of "Exceptional" on the Oregon school report card
School Improvement Goals:
  • Increase retention of students, from 9th grade to 12th grade, to 95% of original cohort, with no significant discrepancy between racial or ethnic subgroups
  • Assure that at least 95% of all students meet the OAKS reading, math and writing benchmarks, with no greater than a 10% gap for racial, ethnic or socioeconomic subgroups
  • Enhance and expand programs and strategies that prepare all students with the skills and habits of mind to successfully pursue their college or career interests
