Illinois Valley High School is a public high school in Cave Junction, Oregon, United States.


In 2008, 72% of the school's seniors received their high school diploma. Of 118 students, 85 graduated, 25 dropped out, 1 received a modified diploma, and 7 are still in high school.[3][4]

In October 2009 the school was removed from the No Child Left Behind safety watch list, due to the following not occurring: "more than 1 percent of their students brought a weapon to school, were expelled for violence or committed a violent crime on campus."[5][6]


Illinois Valley's high school athletic program began around the time the school did. The mascot is known as the "Cougars" and the team colors are red and white.

They are a member in good standing of the Oregon School Activities Association and participate in the Southern Cascade League. All teams currently play in Class 3A based on school enrollment.
