went here it was an okay school. some of the teachers were alright, but most didnt know how to teach. poor staff, aweful principles and ridiculous rules. A lot of unnoticed drug use. a person actually got picked up from school a couple years ago because the person overdosed. horrible communication between teachers/staff and students. students were not taught real world skills, or even remotely close to the skills that are needed for college and are now not going to be very successful after highschool except for a select few.

MPHS is one of the best schools to attend. The teachers are very open minded and work closely with students. The administration staff is very kind and available to students.

I have went to this school since my 8th grade year. I am now a senior and Myrtle Point High School. I love this school and the area around it. The elective classes are wonderful and so are the teachers. We have great choir and drama programs. As a close knit town we always support our sport teams such as football with our great band and cheering spectators.We offer a Philosophy Club, a journalism club, a school newspaper, computer skill classes, and a business education program. We have Spanish as a foreign language and cooperate with Coquille High School to let students have the chance to take classes that we don't provide. We now have seventh graders also attending our high school. They are seperated from the upper classmen and this has worked well. I have went to several schools in my lifetime and Myrtle Point High School is my favorite one.

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.
