Welcome to the Sweet Home School District website! We hope that you are able to use this site to learn about our district, schools, staff, events and other important information about Sweet Home’s educational system.

The City of Sweet Home is located in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. We have a population of approximately 10,000 people including the surrounding areas. Our 2,300 students are housed in four elementary schools, one junior high (grades 7/ 8) and one high school with approximately 750 students. Our District and our community are dedicated to strong academics as well as a comprehensive program that includes the arts, music, vocational education and athletics.

As a school community, we believe that strong partnerships between students, staff and parents are of the utmost importance. Working together, we can insure that all students reach their full potential in a rapidly changing world.

Our staff believes that every child can and will succeed … there is no room for failure and there are no limits to success!
