Academics

High School Instruction

La Pine High School offers a rigorous, comprehensive, high school curriculum with a variety of opportunities for students to learn and grow. With a range of academic offerings including Advanced Placement, College Credit classes and Career Technical courses, students can plan an educational program that fits their future goals. We value the experience our students gain in and outside the classroom with involvement in co-curricular activities through athletics, clubs, and other opportunities as well as our AVID and ASPIRE programs and our partnership with Oregon GEAR UP.

AVID

La Pine High School offers the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program. AVID’s mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.

Advanced Placement

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.

Career-Readiness

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.

Individually Focused. Committed to All.
