Principal's Update: Graduation Update & Student Achievement Night (May 24, 2021)

Graduation Update for Senior Families:

Good afternoon Bruin families,
 
We are excited to announce that we are able to increase the number of family tickets for graduation now that we are officially within our two-week window for graduation and in the green. 

Eleven guest tickets will now be distributed to each student during graduation practice on Friday, June 4.  

With new OHA guidelines, graduates and attendees will not be required to wear face masks during graduation but we are still required to maintain 6 feet of distance between parties. Distanced seating will be available in the stadium and on the track, as well as on the field (bring your own chair) if weather permits. As always, accessible seating will be available for persons with disabilities.  

On a related note, if your senior has not received their cap and gown or has questions about their event time; please contact the school office.  

Our annual Student Achievement Night will be held virtually this year on Friday, May 28, on Facebook and our school website. Students will receive certificates of achievement and a Bruin award during cohort that day. 

Thank you for your patience with us as we’ve navigated this challenging school year with all of its ups and downs. I am continually impressed by how our community comes together for our students and I am always grateful for the support and understanding that you show. 

Yours in service, 
DeAnne Varitek, BHHS Principal

About Us

  • 108 graduates in Class of 2018 Our district has increased the graduation rate from the 60th percentile to more than 80th percentile in recent years, above the state average. We work to keep our students on track to graduate at all grades levels and have intervention programs to help students who fall behind.
  • 3 types of professional certificates offered BHHS students can earn an Allied Health Certificate in partnership with SWOCC, CompTIA Professional Information Technology certificates, and numerous Graphic and Digital Media Art professional software certificates. We've also re-added numerous CTE courses, such as welding and construction trades in recent years to provide more "hands-on" vocational training opportunities.
  • 1,717 dual credits earned in 2017-18 Last year, 184 of our students completed college credits through high school classes. Southern Oregon University (SOU), Oregon Institute of Technology (OIT) and South Western Oregon Community College (SOCC) to provide these dual credit opportunities.
  • $4.5 Million in Seismic Safety Upgrades Our district earned three $1.5 million in grants from Business Oregon to retrofit the elementary, middle and high school for safety in the event of a major earthquake. Kalmiopsis Elementary and Azalea Middle School are complete. Brookings-Harbor High School is slated for construction as soon as summer 2019.
