North Medford High School is a four-year public high school of approximately 1700 students, 72 teaching faculty, 4 building administrators, and 4 counselors. In 2011, 80% of the graduating class was accepted to a community college or university.
Medford is a city with a population just over 76,000. There are three public and two private four year high schools in the community, serving approximately 4,000 students grades 9-12. While primary industries are agriculture, and retailing, the city serves as a home base for a variety of professionals, as Medford is the largest city within the 500 miles between Eugene, Oregon and San Francisco. As a result, Medford is the center for a large number of regional medical and legal services.
Students are ranked according to cumulative grade-point average at the end of each quarter. All grades are included and all grades are nonweighted.
