Bend Senior High School
Our students have access to have meaningful, in-depth experiences in service learning and career exploration as well as opportunities to experience and explore science, technology, engineering, visual and performing arts.
We offer core classes as well as a variety of electives. Many classes provide students the opportunity to earn college credits while in high school. Students also have the opportunity to earn an Honors, Advanced Placement, or International Baccalaureate diploma by taking advanced-level courses that demonstrate the ability to succeed in a rigorous curriculum. We also offer a wide range of academic clubs and co-curricular activities from music to drama to sports.
Advanced Placement (AP) programs are known for rigorous college-level curricula and advanced college credit. AP courses help students acquire the skills and habits needed to be successful in college. AP courses improve writing skills, sharpen problem-solving abilities, and develop time management skills, discipline, and study habits.
Bend Senior High School is an authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) World School that offers the rigorous IB Diploma Programme. This is a district-wide program that all Bend-La Pine Schools students may complete. For more information about the International Baccalaureate Programme, visit our IB Info page or contact the IB Diploma Coordinator Andria Lindsey at 541-355-3906
Once called vocational education, Career Technical Education (CTE) is evolving. It incorporates technology, workforce context and relevance into the secondary setting. The district is also committed to offering opportunities for students to explore pathways for college and career, with the purpose of being exposed to as many options as possible.
When Bend-La Pine Schools students graduate, they should come equipped to do the following:
CTE courses will be offered without regard to sex, race, color, creed, religion, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or any other status protected by law. Additionally, the District will take steps to ensure language will not be a barrier to admission and participation in CTE programs. View our non-discrimination policy and complaint procedure.
