Principal's Message

Welcome to 2019 Azalea Staff, Students, and Families!
 
We are excited to enter the new year with a continued focus on cultivating a growth mindset. Our goal is to ensure that all our students learn that challenges are opportunities and not setbacks. The growth mindset philosophy helps us all remember that we can train our brain to learn new task, skills, and ways of thinking. Our staff has participated in various trainings to learn and practice their own growth mindset. We are committed to the journey, so all our students can be successful as they navigate their middle school years and beyond.
 
Our mission is  to establish a safe and supportive environment where we collaboratively develop confident, life-long learners and critical thinkers by promoting quality habits, values, skills and knowledge for their future endeavors.
 
It is with great pleasure to serve this community of thoughtful, compassionate, and adventurous learners.
 
Respectfully,
Nicole Medrano, Principal

About Us

  • 108 graduates in Class of 2018 Our district has increased the graduation rate from the 60th percentile to more than 80th percentile in recent years, above the state average. We work to keep our students on track to graduate at all grades levels and have intervention programs to help students who fall behind.
  • 3 types of professional certificates offered BHHS students can earn an Allied Health Certificate in partnership with SWOCC, CompTIA Professional Information Technology certificates, and numerous Graphic and Digital Media Art professional software certificates. We've also re-added numerous CTE courses, such as welding and construction trades in recent years to provide more "hands-on" vocational training opportunities.
  • 1,717 dual credits earned in 2017-18 Last year, 184 of our students completed college credits through high school classes. Southern Oregon University (SOU), Oregon Institute of Technology (OIT) and South Western Oregon Community College (SOCC) to provide these dual credit opportunities.
  • $4.5 Million in Seismic Safety Upgrades Our district earned three $1.5 million in grants from Business Oregon to retrofit the elementary, middle and high school for safety in the event of a major earthquake. Kalmiopsis Elementary and Azalea Middle School are complete. Brookings-Harbor High School is slated for construction as soon as summer 2019.
