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.

The staff consists of one principal, three assistant principals, four counselors, an activities director, an athletics director, and over 80 teachers. The school year includes two 18-week semesters.
