Superintendent's Message

Welcome to Oregon City Schools!  Home of the Eagles!......and Future Eagles! (Jets, Rams, & Bulldogs).  Our schools take care of and educate over 3500 students each day.  Our teaching staff is experienced, caring and dedicated to providing the best all around education possible for our students.  We place high value on seven special words:  Tradition-Family-Community-Rigor-Relevance-Relationships-Safety.  These seven words define who we are and provides focus to our beliefs.  

Oregon City Schools or OCS takes pride in having something for everyone.  Our students have opportunities to prepare themselves through advanced courses for college, prepare themselves for the world of work through Career Technical programs and participate in a variety of sports, arts, and clubs.  We take care of our most needy students with focused special education programs and offer accelerated students grade/subject level advancement opportunities at each of our six schools. Students who attend our schools obtain strong foundational skills with a variety of pathways to graduation.  
 
Employees of OCS work hard to provide a positive and supportive learning environment for all of our students which leads to a positive culture for our students.  Our culture is strong and growing stronger with three core beliefs: 
Together We Are One! - Passion for Growth! - Own it! 
These three standards are how we behave towards each other, our students, and our community.  

I am very proud of our community, students and staff for taking on the challenge of the COVID pandemic and all the emotions going along with it.  The pandemic taught us we can quickly pivot as an educational system to provide instruction in various ways to meet the needs of unique student and family situations.  Our community is strong and will only grow stronger as a result of the pandemic.

Working with the Oregon Schools Foundation, OSF continues to raise private funds supporting projects and classroom activities in the areas of Academics, Arts, and Athletics.  In February 2021, OSF raised $37,000 in one hour hosting the first virtual "Frost Fest" fundraiser.  With an endowment growing fast, OSF is a huge support to our schools.  We are proud to have a strong network of support from local business and many successful alumni.  OCS is a special place to be!

On behalf of the Board of Education, our Leadership team, and all our employees thank you for choosing Oregon City Schools!
