Principal's Message

Bruin family,
The first quarter is coming to an end this Thursday, October 31st. Students are encouraged to get any missed work turned ASAP. There will be no school for students this Friday, November 1st so that teachers can enter 1st quarter grades in time for upcoming conferences. 
We hope to see you at conferences on either Wednesday, November 6th or Thursday, November 7th from 5-8 pm in the gymnasium to meet with your student's teachers and to pick up your student's progress report. This is an important time to review academic progress and help us better understand your student's needs.   
And if you have a few minutes to stop by the school this week, we are holding Site Council elections for our two parent/guardian positions. Please request a ballot at the window to vote for two of our three candidates. We will announce the winners next week.
Yours in service, 
DeAnne Varitek, 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.
