Charles A. Sprague High School
Orange, White, Black
All students graduate and are prepared for a successful life.
We are committed to meeting the diverse needs of all members of our community, seeing and valuing the ideals, hopes, and dreams of our students, while maximizing access to all social and school opportunities, and creating a culture and community that enables individual students to find academic and personal success.
Salem is the capital city of Oregon and the third largest city in the state, with a population of over 175,000. Salem is situated in the center of the Willamette Valley, one of the most fertile and agriculturally productive regions in the nation. It is located 47 miles south of Portland and 64 miles north of Eugene.
We believe partnerships with our parents, guardians and community will create a better learning environment for our students. We offer many opportunities throughout the year to engage our families with their child’s education. FAFSA Night, Parent-Teacher Conferences, Curriculum Night, NCAA Informational Meetings and Booster Club opportunities are just a few of the ways we partner with our parents and guardians. We believe strong two-way communication will support each and every student at Sprague. Parents and guardians are encouraged to maintain strong lines of communication with their child’s teachers.
