John Day School District 3


The John Day School District 3 in Oregon is home to 3 schools, including 2 elementary schools (Humbolt Elementary School and Seneca Elementary School) and 1 high school (Grant Union Junior/Senior High School). The district stands out for its exceptional performance at the high school level, with Grant Union Junior/Senior High School ranking 6th out of 258 Oregon high schools and earning a 5-star rating from SchoolDigger.

Humbolt Elementary School has shown consistent improvement in its statewide ranking, moving from 418th out of 705 Oregon elementary schools in 2018-2019 to 268th out of 706 in 2021-2022. The school's test scores in English Language Arts and Mathematics are generally higher than the district and state averages, particularly in the lower grades. In contrast, Seneca Elementary School, with only 12 students, is the smallest school in the district and may face unique challenges and opportunities due to its size.

Across the district, the schools have a predominantly white student population, ranging from 75% at Seneca Elementary to 88.89% at Grant Union Junior/Senior High School. This racial homogeneity may warrant further investigation into the diversity and inclusiveness of the educational environment. Additionally, the significant differences in spending per student, with Seneca Elementary School spending nearly twice as much as Humbolt Elementary School, suggest potential inequities in resource allocation within the district.
