Mission Statement:
South Eugene High School is a caring community that encourages students to be lifelong learners and contributors in an increasingly complex world.

Program Description:
South Eugene is a well-established and highly regarded high school. Students and staff take great pride in the sheer number of exceptional opportunities available at our open-campus school. Our rigorous curriculum includes college preparatory courses across all content areas, rigorous science and math courses, vibrant literature offerings, relevant experiences in the social sciences, 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 advanced academic opportunities. SEHS students also participate in a multitude of clubs and a full athletic program.

School Highlights:

  • Our reputation for academic excellence includes a great variety of Advanced Placement courses in math, science, English, social studies and world languages for which SEHS is recognized statewide and nationally
  • Outstanding performing, applied and fine arts programs—students interested in music and theater thrive at South, as do those interested in fine arts; Career Technical Education courses offered include Culinary Arts, Advanced Computer Science, Journalism, Early Childhood Education, as well as Autonomous Aerial Systems (drones)
  • Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID): This college preparatory system includes an AVID elective class at each grade level, and AVID strategies such as Focused Notetaking, Socratic Seminar and Interactive Notebooks are utilized in classrooms throughout the school
  • Award-winning counseling and career center: Approximately 90% of SEHS graduates go on to either four-year universities or two-year colleges
  • SAT, ACT and state test scores well above state and national averages have resulted in SEHS being one of few comprehensive high schools to consistently receive the highest ratings among high schools in Oregon
  • Successful athletic program, plus a robust student-club program of approximately 40 interest-based groups ranging from sports to chess to dance to multicultural issues to robotics and more

School Improvement Goals:

  • To have a more inclusive academic, extracurricular and co-curricular program representative of the diverse student body we serve
  • To be a more cohesive institution where every student is known and cared for
  • To have a robust freshman transition and student retention program for all SEHS students and families
