Parent/Student Info

Flag Photo 2 copyScenic Middle School is located in the rapidly growing community of Central Point, Oregon, population 16,550. This community is in the beautiful Rogue River Valley in southwestern Oregon.It retains a small-town, rural feel despite its rapid growth.The nearby community of Medford provides a wide variety of career and work opportunities, Ashland, Oregon, home of the Shakespearean theater and Southern Oregon University is only a twenty minute drive from Central Point.

Scenic opened its doors in the fall of 1968 as Scenic Junior High.At that time it housed approximately 750 seventh, eighth and ninth grade students. Currently it consists of sixth, seventh and eighth grade students divided into two teams or houses. Each house has approximately 440 students and seventeen teachers. The formation of houses is intended to create smaller communities within our larger population; communities where students and teachers build connected, caring relationships that will foster a strong and positive learning environment. Scenic Middle School students enter one of the three small schools on the Crater High School campus after they complete eighth grade.

In addition to core classes of math, language arts, science, social studies and reading, Scenic offers students the following elective classes: band, chorus, technology, health, art,  physical education, and computers.  Support classes for special needs students and help sessions for all in the morning and at lunch complete the academic picture. The Scenic staff is a blend of new and veteran teachers with a wide variety of interests and strengths. We realize the need to provide for our middle school students academically, emotionally, physically and socially. Scenic staff members are caring, compassionate and skilled as they work to meet the needs of our students.

We look forward to meeting and getting to know our families throughout this school year.
