The Clemens Grant[edit]

A scholarship fund set up for graduates of Philomath High School was the subject of the documentary Clear Cut: The Story of Philomath, Oregon. [clarification needed]

New construction[edit]

In 2011, a $20 million construction project was started to rebuild a classroom wing and athletic complex at the school.[5] The plan was soon amended to rebuild most of the school itself, while retaining and reusing structures from the main and auxiliary gymnasiums.

Varsity Football Scandal[edit]

In July 2016, Six Philomath High School varsity football players and one coach were cited in connection with “aggravated hazing” incidents at Camp Rilea in Clatsop County. The incidents involved at least 11 alleged victims. The six youths have been cited on charges that, if committed by adults, would constitute the crimes of harassment and assault. All the harassment or attempted harassment charges involve "offensive physical contact with intimate parts.," Benton County District Attorney John Haroldson said, adding that the charges are either Class A or Class B misdemeanors.[6]
