HVHS is a very handson type of school... The kids here are really good and down to earth... We just a small country school but I think that's what makes us different...

I think Hidden valley high school could be better. the teachers play favorites and the jocks are the schools most prize possession.The kids are also very rude and judgmental.

As a former student, I'd like to say that in many ways, attending Hidden Valley truly shaped me into the positive person I am today. I was involved in a few extracurricular activities and sports, yet I learned so much from the participants and the teachers; were it not for some of the teachers that gave their time and all of their heart into projects and their classes, I would not be the strong, intellegent person I am today.

As a former student of Hidden Valley, I have to say that the teachers and faculty of Hidden Valley shaped me into who I am today. The HV staff are not only there to teach the students, but they really take the time to form relationships with the students. I feel that is a great way to teach students. Hidden Valley was also nice beccause it is a relatively small school in comparison to others, which is why you really get to know everyone there, both fellow students and faculty. Overall, HV is an awesome place to trust your children's education with.

I've noticed that you don't see a lot of parent participation until the senior events come around. It's nice of parents to be supportive of their seniors, but the other grades need parent involvement, too. Dennis Misner is a great principal. He listens, is patient with students, and doesn't bend over backwards to make students miserable. He respects his students and tries to work with them one-on-one to make a high school a more positive experience for them.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Oregon used the Oregon Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (OAKS) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math; in grade 11 in writing; and in grades 5, 8 and 11 in science. The OAKS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Oregon. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
