Crescent Valley High School, known as CV, is a four-year public secondary school in Corvallis, Oregon, United States. Opened in 1971 in a rural location north of the city, it is one of the two traditional high schools of the Corvallis School District.

Academics[edit]

Courses are sometimes shared with Corvallis High School.[citation needed] Students taking courses at the partner school ride an approximately 15 minute bus to attend shared classes.[citation needed] Examples of such courses offerings from past years include AP Physics (offered at CHS and shared until 2010) or AP Environmental Science (offered at CV) as well as Orchestra (at CV).[citation needed]

In 2008, 79% of the school's seniors received their high school diploma. Of 243 students, 192 graduated, 39 dropped out, 1 received a modified diploma, and 11 are still in high school.[5][6]

In 2010, a student at the school was honored as a Presidential Scholar, one of three from Oregon.[7] There have been two other Presidential Scholars from this school in the last ten years.

Reputation and ratings[edit]

According to the 2006-2007 School Report Card, the average SAT score of CV students is higher than the state or national averages (with 66% participating).[8] In 2007, the school met AYP targets set by the No Child Left Behind Act for the first time since the act's legislation.[9] The school has won the Oregonian Cup, which recognizes "overall excellence by schools in academics, activities and athletics," in the 2000-2001, 2006-2007, and 2007-2008 academic years.[10]

The school received a silver ranking from U.S. News & World Report's 2010 "America's Best High Schools" survey.[11][12]

Athletics[edit]

In addition to many athletic teams, CV contributes to a co-ed Ultimate Frisbee team known as Tribe that has gone to state almost every year.[citation needed] Tribe has also managed to win state in recent years.[citation needed] CV has beaten CHS in every sport; 2013-2014.

Crescent Valley has also produced notable PGA tour professional Robert Garrigus (class of 1995), who led the PGA tour in driving distance from 2009-2010. Garrigus helped Crescent Valley win its first state championship in golf.
