The school constantly changes the requirements, gives almost no support, and has nothing of value to teach anyone who is interested in their education, with the exception of a few very dedicated teachers who are willing to work a lot of overtime to try and provide any education possible. Teachers are overworked, there are not enough of them, and there is no school funding. Additionally, I have personally seen students trading drugs in the hallways. and a good chunk of the time there will be a hallway closed off as fights break out. It is an unsafe environment, and one in which children are unlikely to learn much.

Lebanon High School is a dynamic school where teachers and staff "really" care about success of the students. My children have received a top notch education there and are now completing their college degrees.

This school has got to be the most unfair, unorganized two-faced place I have ever had my child attend. This school corrupts our kids then tries to blame the parent or just sweep the behaviour aside and we won't tell your mom or dad.......I seriously "hate" this school

Lebanon High School has made positive gains over the past several years under the leadership of Principal Yates. Math scores are up, Language scores are up; a great public high school!

This school has had a horrible reputation for quite some time it seems. Frankly, I would rather send my son to high school in Sweet Home if there have been no improvements by the time he starts HS. He goes in to 8th grade in Sept. 2011 and I am willing to relocate if necessary to get him into a decent High School when he is ready to go. Lebanon High is just horrible.

This school has so many problems it is difficult to create a general overview for the rating. Overall the staff do not show much concern for the education of the students. The administration tends to be disrespectful toward parents and show little concern for student safety.

The Systems have really screwed up the school and the counselors do not give the students the attention they should unless they get sent there when they are in trouble.

My child has done well with the smaller systems and that I like. What I don't like is the lack of electives, the seemingly overloaded teachers and the disfunction of the school board, everything stays in an uproar. Many of the teachers are dedicated but dispirited, and many are retiring. As well I could do with a greater level of advanced classes. The school seems to cater to the lowest standard not the highest and as a result classes are pretty noisy and discipline a challenge.

My daughter has really excelled at Lebanon High School. She loves DECA and STARS and is having the time of her life. Her teachers are wonderful! They challenge and support her. I especially love the flexibility in scheduling that allows her to take classes in all four academies. As a taxpayer it is evident that the academy system isn't working and will soon be dismantled. Lebanon High School was great before Jim Robinson and it will be great after him. As far as Peggy Blair being the gem on staff? Get your facts straight...she doesn't even work there anymore. Lebanon School District is lucky enough to have some really dedicated, smart, caring professionals. I, for one, would like to see our community recognize that.

Our student has had a successful experience during the first year at LHS, thanks to Soc. Systems Principal Peggy Blair. Ms. Blair is one of the only 'gems' on staff, with the exception of a (very) few outstanding teachers. Our student is an over-achiever with high expectations, and has found the structure of this school to be unbelievably disorganized, fragmented, and totally unprofessional relating to nurturing and encouraging the students' success. Thankfully Ms. Blair is completely competent; professional; cooperative; and goes above and beyond to get the job done well. As parents we are only 'moderately' pleased with our student's experience here. We certainly have seen the high school experience presented in a much more competent and successful environment in other districts.

Academic Programs would rate a 6 on a scale of 1-10. No availability of extracurricular activities unless you can afford one leg and one arm. parent involvement level is high.

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.
