The Class of 2013 exceeded national and state averages on the standardized ACT test! Recent Junction City graduates also surpassed and excelled in all 4 state benchmarks including English Composition, College Algebra, Social Science and Biology. These results indicate that Junction City High School students are prepared to master designated college courses at their chosen post-secondary institutions.
Junction City School District is committed to Engage, Inspire and Educate all our students by offering physical education, music, comprehensive art, computer technology, as well as enrichment
and academic support in before
and after school programs.

Second trimester classes are underway, and first trimester grades should mailed on Tuesday, December 3, 2013. The transition to proficiency-based grading may cause some differences in grade reporting. As always, parents with questions about student grades are encouraged to contact their child’s teachers directly. Staff email addresses are on the left side of this page. Please click on the “Staff Directory” link on the left side of this page.
Winter Sport Athletes
Any athlete must pass four classes in Tri-1 to participate in winter sports. By policy, students who received a grade of “F” or “NP” (No Pass) must miss one athletic contest.
Student-Athletes who earned a grade of “I” (incomplete) will have two weeks to complete their course requirements and preserve their athletic eligibility. This grace period is similar to the process used for mid-term progress reports. Athletes who have not passed four first trimester classes as of December 14, 2013, will not be eligible to compete after December 15, 2013 until the passing grades are reported.
HOME ACCESS CENTER (HAC) UPDATE – IMPORTANT! Students and parents should be keeping track of current academic standing via the Home Access Center (HAC). Grades and assignments are updated most school day evenings (if new information was added).
Please note that HAC does not send notifications. To see the most current academic status, go to the student’s “Classes” tab and then click “Full View” on the right side of the page. Grade percentages will be shown by assignment, by category and by total.
Clicking the “Grades” tab will provide access to the student’s Interim Progress Report (IPR), Report Card (when published), and Transcripts. IPRs provide an overview of student progress but do not provide grade or assignment details.
STATE PROFICIENCY This school year, graduating students must meet Oregon proficiency standards in reading, writing, and math and complete all required credits to earn a standard JCSD or State diploma.
The Oregon Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (OAKS) is the primary means for demonstrating proficiency. Seniors who have not yet met one of these test requirements should be taking the appropriate Language Arts and/or Math courses to assist in this process.
OUR MISSION JCHS is on a mission to model Readiness, Respect, and Resilience by example.
We intend to see every student graduate with the skills to pursue any pathway they choose and the ability to adapt to change.
We intend for our students to be mindful ambassadors for JCHS and the greater community.
We intend to give our community great reasons to be proud of its youth..
