Eagle Point and Ashland High School are the only two large high schools in the valley to be named “Outstanding.”
Superintendent Cynda Rickert complimented the high school staff on the student testing results and noted it showed the results of a staff and student body that was focused on improvement. “Marks such as “outstanding” are generally seen in the lower grades. It is very rare to see a high school with higher marks than the elementary grades,” said Rickert.
