Hoquiam High School, located within the Hoquiam School District in Hoquiam, Washington, is a comprehensive high school which first opened in 1891. Hoquiam serves as the third largest high school in Grays Harbor County, Washington; covering the city of Hoquiam and unincorporated parts of northern Grays Harbor County. The school is accredited by the Washington State Superintendent of Public Instruction. Current enrollment is slightly under 600 students. The principal is Mr. Brock Maxfield and vice principal is Mr. Scott Hyder. The mascot is a Grizzly Bear. The current campus was actually built for roughly 1,200 students, less than 600 are now enrolled in part due to the economic decline of Grays Harbor County (as a result of the dwindling logging trade in the mid-to-late 1980s). Several classrooms sit empty, are used for other purposes, or enlarged if equipped with a flexible wall. The track was reinstalled and rededicated in 2005. Since Fall of 2005 there have been 5 separate incidents involving minors leading to the firing of Hoquiam High School teachers.
