Best Public Schools in Port Orford, OR


The city of Port Orford, Oregon is home to two schools: Driftwood Elementary School and Pacific High School, both part of the Port Orford-Langlois School District 2CJ. While Driftwood Elementary has a relatively large enrollment of 169 students, Pacific High School is smaller with just 56 students.

Driftwood Elementary struggles with consistently lower test scores compared to the state average, particularly in mathematics where proficiency rates range from 6.3% to 52.9% across grade levels, well below Oregon's averages. The school also has a high free and reduced lunch rate of 58.58%, indicating a significant population of economically disadvantaged students. In contrast, Pacific High School has historically strong performance, ranking in the top 15 statewide in 2016-2017, though its ranking has since declined to 133 out of 258 high schools. Pacific High School's 11th-grade students perform better than the state average in English Language Arts, but worse in Mathematics and Science.

Both schools exhibit significantly lower mathematics proficiency rates compared to the state, suggesting a potential need to focus on strengthening mathematics instruction and support. Additionally, the unusually high 125% free and reduced lunch rate reported for Pacific High School raises questions about data reporting or a unique situation at the school, while the high rates at both schools point to potential equity concerns and the availability of resources for economically disadvantaged students.
