About Sprague


Our Community

Salem, Oregon's capital, is the third largest city in the state, with a population of 164,549. Salem is situated in the center of the Willamette Valley - one of the most fertile and agriculturally productive regions in the nation - 47 miles south of Portland and 64 miles north of Eugene. State government is the largest employer with approximately 13,000 full-time employees.


Our Mission

The vision of Sprague High School is to create a community of educated individuals with an understanding of self, society, and the world; and a commitment to make a positive contribution to all three. Link to our New PBIS site.

Sprague currently has a student population of approximately 1,600+ students, and is crowded like most high schools in Salem.

Sprague HS has been educating Salem students for over 30 years and is accredited by the Northwest Association of Colleges, Universities and High Schools. It is a four-year high school. The staff consists of one principal, three assistant principals, four counselors, an activities director, an athletics director, and about 80 teachers. The school year includes four 9-week quarters.
