I am a parent of 2 kids that have attended Stayton High School. Both of my children have different kinds of mental disorders and one has a learning disorder too. They both had a hard time at the school, my daughter was bullied her JR & SR years by other students. My son was bullied by some staff. Over all it is NOT a good school for children with disorders, the staff does not have enough experience.

I believe Stayton High School offers many great opportunities for students. I do not put a whole lot of stock into these other reviews with students complaining about a lack of programs to get involved in. You need to make the most with what is offered rather than standing on the sidelines complaining about what you don't have. As for a hint to the school board, try another measure that will pay for a whole new school. We all know that you need it. Don't try to ask for $40 million to put a band-aid on your problems just to blow that and need more in 5 years from now. Maybe try to save us all some money by building a school that has already been built by another school district. That will save us millions in engineering and architect fees.

Overall, this school needs a lot of improvement and is poorly managed, from the board to principal to classrooms. They are still paying on an older bond measure and, having blown through that, they recently asked for another $40 million. Thankfully, it went down to defeat. In terms of principal leadership, basic school rules are not enforced, and teachers are unable or unwilling to even enforce rules on the dance floor. While SAT scores have remained more or less the same, state testing scores have been slipping. If I could afford it, my kids would be going to Regis.

Many programs are offered here. It is a great place to learn and build relationships with students, teachers, administrators, and the community. Those who dont believe we offer much here should take a look around. Our clubs, sports and ASB group offer things to be a part of almost daily. Also we are constantly being pushed to achieve more ( Saturday School) become a part of the rest of us and be an Eagle. Support what they have provided for us. 5 STARS STAYTON!

I am a Junior Stayton High School and I have to say that overall its just an all right school. Not much leadership from the principal at all the only thing she does is stand in the hall and smile. She's 'apart of the assembelies' which means she just tells other people to quiet down and listen. The one thing she is good at is introducing other people.

I currently attend Stayton High School.Honestly I look at as a joke,along with my fellow classmates.An overall school rating of a 3 could possibly be considered to high.What academic programs?Our music programs,both choir and band do rather well.But are very much under appreciated,and never receive recognition.Some art programs receive much praise,while others such as the welders and wood-workers seem to be looked down apon.The SHS sports program is very strong,if you're interested in football or basketball this schools for you.Both of these athletic facilities are impressive,and have always been very well taken care of.After all,they are the pride and joy of our school.This past year our bond didnt pass,with our budget hurting,roofes leaking,and ceilings colapsing,we still have the money to keep the important facilities up.Luckily this year the asbestos was taken out, but our student and academics really a priorety?As a student I dont feel like we are.

I am currently a student at SHS! I have been involved in many activities that SHS has to offer, from drama, to winning the state title for Dance team! it has been an amazing journey through high school. The teachers have been great supports, and are there for the students, they love us, and they show it with their never ending commitment to our success. I have received a great education from there and look forward to finishing strong my last year. I recently moved to West Salem, and had the decision to make of which school to attend. As amazing as West Salem High is, I couldn't imagine not graduating from the same school my dad did. Stayton high has made me the student and person I am today. The teachers, school spirit, and small town feel has made a wonderful school!

I just graduated from Mari-Linn Elementary School and for the most part I think it's a great school. In the seven years that I went there I recieved a lot of ono-on-one attention from many of my instructors which helped me to achieve honoroll GPA's. The principal shows great interest in her students and staff and is very friendly. One of the great things about small schools is learning to build close relationships with many people. The thing that I dislike the most is that the enviroment is mainly set for an elementary school and is often discouraging to the older students. Though it is both a middle and elementary school in comparison to other schools it's more elementry which I believe sets back the older students and leaves us unprepared for the highschool enviroment. Sincerely Alanna Johnson.
