Unfortunately all schools in Oregon are required to use the new grading system. I just moved here and hate it also. But since it is state control you can't really blame the high school. Maybe write a letter or complaint to the state education system.

I graduated from Eagle Point and if you are a top tier student that is self motivated, you will be fine. Those ok with B or C, won't find encouragment or someone to help them see why an A is important. There are some excellent teachers and some that are just there to get paid. The administration is the issue, not necessarily the teachers. Great school spirit when things are going good.

Administration is easy to access. Teacher involvement is Outstanding! We love the direction of Eagle Point High School and would suggest that if you have a question, you make an appointment with the principal.

New High School Principl (Alan Barber) and District Superintendent have, in a very short time, brought a whole new level of pride and enthusiasum to the school. Happy teachers make for happy and motivated students, and both groups are benefiting from the new leadership. EPHS is a school with a history and tradition of being great. It looks to be on it's way back to the top. Go Eagles!

The new leadership at District 9 (New EPHS-Principal and Superintendent) bodes well for the future of Eagle Point High and all the other schools in District 9. In just 1 semester the spirit of the students and teachers has increased dramaticly. I feel confident that EPHS will return to being one of the best High schools in the area, in a very short time, under the leadership of Alen Barber and Cynda Rickert.

I have read all you thoughts and complaints about Eagle point high school and I would have to say alot of you are wrong.I went to Eagle Point and ended up moving right before the end of the year.I live in Iowa now and I have moved 3 times since I've been here which means alot of different schools.If you are a parent I think you should feel lucky that your children get to go to such a wonderful school.Compared to the things I have seen and the poor education I have been put through in all these different schools, Eagle Point was by far the best.Yes I do agree that Eagle Point has always had money issues but as far as I am concerned,what school doesnt have money problems.In todays society this is one of the best schools you'll find.We all have our own oppinions.This is mine. -Sara Reeves

As a 2003 grad of EPHS, going off to college and meeting people from so many other backgrounds and education experiences has made me realize how much EPHS has such low standards for it's students. There is a huge problem with the attitude of students, parents, and sadly, teachers, towards education and the level of success that students should and can be able to achieve. The good teachers that were there have been pushed away from the administration and not having the support that they need. So much has to do with the lack of financial support and emphasis on standardized test scores. As a future teacher, EPHS was a role model, but a negative role model...in many ways, I have learned how not to teach. I appreciate it so much more because of that. It makes me so sad to go home on breaks and see things becoming worse.

The administrators are so focused on disciplinary actions that the academic side is suffering. Eagle Point High received unsatisfactory state testing which shows me that this school dist., especially the high school, has no real ambition to see the students achieve scholastically. I have chosen to home school my son rather then continue dealing with the politics of Eagle Point High, the poor state ratings an the unconcerned school administrators. Think twice before admitting your child.

I attend Eagle Point High School, and I think it is a great school. There are so many oppertunitys and activities. The only way you would not have a great high school experance here is if you didn't get involved. The teachers are great, allways willing to help you and they take time out of there scheudle to make sure you understand the work. Eagle Point High School is a wonderfull school and I am proud to be an Eagle.

I go to Eagle Point High.I think it is a great school. Everyone is so nice, and all the teachers are willing to take extra time to help students that are having problems. I have gone to other high schools in this area, but I think Eagle Point is the best because everyone respects you. I would highly recomend Eagle Point High School, ecspecialy to kids that have problems getting along with other kids or have hard time understanding stuff.

Who better to write a review of an organization better then a member? So, as a student, I'll offer my two cents. Eagle Point High School, like any other school has its advantages as well as its weaknesses. However, unlike most high schools in the nation, this one has more weakness then it does advantages. The teachers are not the problem. They take time off their personal lives and offer their help to students during their lunch breaks, as well as after hours. They even list their phone numbers. The problem is the budget cuts. Due to these cuts, advanced classes are not available to the students. Out dated teaching material, despite the teacher's efforts to provide their own material hinders current curriculum.

Both of my daughters have attended Eagle Point, and I have as well. My oldest daughter graduated in 2003, and my other daughter is starting her Junior year. The school has some major money problems, programs are being cut, as well as teachers, and I don't think the students are getting offered the classes and special attention that they all need. My Junior is in advanced classes, but classes and programs that she would like to enter to help her with her nursing career are being cut. She will have to go to North Medford next year for a couple classes that she isn't able to take at EP, simply because Eagle Point doesn't have the money to offer them. She has also been studying French for three years, and the school needs to make sure they offer French for those who want to continure in the area. Use money wisely.

I have had two sons who attended School at Eagle Point High School. I am an Eagle Point Graduate from 1977. There are a lot of excuses for why the students are not getting an education from this school district. Funny thing is, they almost always point at the students and their parents and not the teachers and staff. If 50% or more of a class is failing, who's fault is it? At EPHS the only grade that you can fail is 12th. There is a common joke in the Rogue Valley about being improperly educated, 'You must have graduated from Eagle Point.'. It is really sad, because the only ones that are suffering for the lack of educating is the students. I do want to acknowlege that there are some really good teachers at EPHS, however they are over shadowed by the others. If you are thinking of moving into this school district, I would do some serious investigating into what the parents and community have to say. We can't all be wrong.

Ok, so, Im not a parent, Im a student this year. Im a freshmen> But, so far, I love This high school. I have friends in all grades. All the classes I have are awesome. And I know a lot of the teachers because my friends have older sisters and brothers who are there or who have graduated. The school is really nice, clean (sometimes) and just really awesome. We had a poll about what was the nicest teacher and the best class. Most of the people we asked said it was Ms. Reed and Band. We have everything at our school. Our teachers are helpful and careing. The people in the office are awesome. Once you get over the shock of how many people there are and the size our our campus, it is really awesome. We are so diverse, yet, we are friends with everyone. All the rest I can say about it, is that its awesome. You would love going here or having a child here.

I have lived here since 1945 and attended these school, except for 7 years in the east. I was shocked when I returned here, to find that standards are so low, and they seem to have remained low. EP schools were one of three voted closed in the nation in 1976. I am now a retired teacher. Another source of angst, in this district and others: Oregon's compentency plan. It is a miserable answer to a problem of weakness in the education system. (Simply stated: the process gives teachers so much more paper work on evaluating student work, that they naturally cut back on what is taught so they can survive the work load. Who suffers for that?) Since the late 50's wise use of funds has always a source of community irritation in Eagle Point and surrounding communities. Ex. The cause of the school fire? Something they'd been trying to fix since I'd attended there from '59-63! Wiring and the boiler. The entire community knows this and is very frustrated by this set back. After the junior high burned down they cut funding. Logical? Perhaps, but the best computer teacher is now making more money painting stripes on Oregon highways, and our students suffered for it a great deal. EPHS have a $40,000 piano lab, which in itself is very remarkable, but I would rather see computer/job skills stressed. I was so frustrated that I took my child out of EPHS and we did the GED so he could get on to college where classes are more intense and valuable.
