Education

The Hermiston School District is the largest district in Eastern Oregon. It serves over 5,600 students, and continues to experience steady enrollment growth. The school district has five K-5 elementary schools, two 6-8 middle schools, a 9-12 senior high school, an alternative school and a robust online learning program for students and families. The district provides a broad range of programs from foundational learning skills, to comprehensive vocational programs, to an exhaustive array of post-secondary college credit opportunities.

The school district prides itself on the academic achievement of its students, successful athletic programs, nationally-recognized club and activity organizations and an exhaustive list of academic and elective opportunities available to students. The district’s partnership with community organizations has been pivotal to its continued success; highlighted by support groups who have provided nearly half a million dollars to assist students and programs through such venues as the Hermiston Sports Booster Club, Hermiston Education Foundation, Band Boosters, FFA Alumni and the community sponsorship of the student homebuilding program, to name a few.

Community support towards the district is very strong. In 2001 voters approved a $39-million-dollar capital construction bond which included the reconstruction of the high school, an additional elementary school and various district-wide renovations. In 2008, voters also approved a $69.9 million bond that helped replace Armand Larive Middle School, West Park and Sunset Elementary.

The district employs over 520 full-time staff, which includes approximately 300 teachers and over 200 classified, support and supervisory personnel; making it one of the largest employers in the city of Hermiston. The district serves some 28,000 residents, where one-third of the population is Hispanic. This community embraces diversity.

Hermiston School District is striving to become the premier public school district in Oregon.Hermiston High School
