Heppner – Morrow County School District (MCSD) is pleased to announce that Heppner High School and Irrigon High School were named award recipients of the U.S. News Best High Schools in 2015. Both schools were awarded a Bronze Medal.
To earn this prestigious honor, Oregon high school students are required to earn at least 24 credits to graduate. Students also must establish college readiness by demonstrating mastery of essential skills, such as earning proficient scores in math, reading and writing on the Oregon Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (OAKS). This data is gathered annually from the Oregon Department of Education.
“Our district is proud of Heppner and Irrigon High’s accomplishments. Whenever a school is recognized as highly successful, it is great cause for celebration and a testament to our K-12 learning system. Learning is a lifelong endeavor--the work that is done prior to high school often leads to high school success. Our district is proud of all K-12 students, staff, community members and families that make this all possible,” said Dirk Dirksen, superintendent of MCSD.
