Sam Barlow High School in Gresham, Oregon

Sam Barlow High School is a public high school in Gresham, Oregon, United States, in the Gresham-Barlow School District. It was named for the Oregon pioneer Sam Barlow. Barlow is home to a teacher from Wales named Stephen Corkett who received the University of Oregon's high school teacher of the year award.[3]

History[edit]

Sam Barlow High School first opened in September 1968 in its present location at 302nd street and Lusted Road east of Gresham, Oregon.[4]

On November 23, 2009, two students discussed plans for a school shooting at Barlow High on Myspace.[5] They were found guilty of disorderly conduct in February 2010.[5]

Academics[edit]

In 2008, 75% of the school's seniors received their high school diploma. Of 419 students, 315 graduated, 74 dropped out, 10 received a modified diploma, and 20 are still in high school.[6][7]

In 2013, 85% of the school's seniors received their high school diploma. Of 400 students, 340 graduated, 40 dropped out, 6 received a modified diploma, and 13 are still in high school.[8] Barlow's students have been filling AP classes and nailing AP exams at such a high rate that the College Board named the Gresham-Barlow School District to its fourth-annual Advanced Placement District Honor Roll. Just three districts in Oregon received the honor.[9]
