Welcome to Southridge High School. Opening in 1999, Southridge is one of the six comprehensive high schools in the Beaverton School District. Our diverse student body at Southridge equals approximately 1430 students feeding from Conestoga, Highland Park and Whitford Middle Schools.
At Southridge we strive to instill a strong well-rounded program for all students. It is important that our students experience a rigorous curriculum of study, a diverse selection of activities, and a competitive athletic environment. Southridge is founded on the beliefs of the International Baccalaureate program. We aim to develop internationally minded people, who recognize humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, and to help create a better and more peaceful world.
Southridge High School is also proud to be an AVID school. The AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) ideals align with our IB mission. AVID’s mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society. AVID’s best practices of writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization and reading support all students to be successful in and outside of the classroom.
In addition, we believe in teaching our students to be good stewards of the world around them. We are the only comprehensive high school in Beaverton to require 60 service-learning hours in order to graduate. We strive to create opportunities for all students, and we:
Academics, Creativity, Relationships, Diversity
