With a town as small as Florence, OR, everyone knows each other. While this can be a good thing, at Siuslaw it was not. More drama and rumors and staff playing favorites than you'd get at another school. But if you played sports, you were all set for success! Especially since your coach is also your writing or health teacher. Siuslaw has a great selection of electives, however. Cullinary, a great automotive class, art, music, etc.

The majority of the teachers are great and others are strange. The building is greatly deteriorated, we often times have no heat, there is asbestos in the walls, water damage throughout the school district, and poor ventilation, especially in the science classrooms. We have poor or limited resources for academics, clubs, and athletics. Most textbooks are falling apart and outdated. Learning materials such as microscopes, are limited and falling apart. Funding for sports programs is largely based on donations from the community or out of pocket.
The academics taught at Siuslaw High School are limited, but those classes the school does offer typically include AP, Honors, and college credit courses. The teachers are passionate and genuinely interested in teaching the students. However, the budget is strapped, and the variety of courses available is very small. The school hosts a volunteer ran Aspire college readiness program. The daily lunches are organic and free and reduced lunches are offered. Softball, basketball, volleyball, baseball and football are offered by the school, as well as track and field.
