RAHS is a community-based alternative HIgh School for students who are not succeeding in the public school setting. It is a last chance for an education, and a way to change their future.
Rosemary Anderson High School is Portland OIC’s community-based alternative high school, in operation since 1983, and accredited by the NW Accreditation Commission.
Enrolling up to 190 students annually at our North Killingsworth location, our at-risk students have either been expelled or dropped out of public high school and many are homeless. RAHS provides open-door year round access to the “last chance” to complete a high school education, and is currently achieving a 90% graduation rate amongst students who enroll and attend classes.
In September 2012 Rosemary Anderson High School East will open, to serve students in the Centennial and Gresham-Barlow school districts. RAHS East will launch with 100 students, and offer the same wrap-around care that has been effective at RAHS North over the past 30 years.
