Ashland Middle School, Willow Wind and John Muir Students

All students entering high school must register for the 2019-2020 School Year via the parent PowerSchool account. Although students may already have their schedules, that is not an indicator that they have registered.

Current Ashland High School Students

Students who attended AHS last year still need to register, even if they have their schedule.

Proof of Residency Required for Registration

Freshmen and New Students will be asked to upload TWO proofs of residency:

1. One must be either a current mortgage statement, escrow papers, property tax bill or a current rental agreement signed by both parties.


2. the other must be a current utility bill, financial statement, pay stub, insurance papers (car, home, health) or government documents (social security, WIC, Oregon Health plan, Unemployment Insurance) *Please note that drivers licenses and telephone bills are not accepted*

Students who do not have Proof of Residency prior to the first day of class are in danger of having their classes dropped.

You can upload a scan or a clear photograph directly to the registration page or you can bring the paperwork in to the office beginning August 7th.

Welcome Class of 2023!

This August, all incoming 9th graders will have the opportunity to attend the AHS Fresh Start Orientation Retreat at Mt. Ashland Lodge. This unique overnight program will prepare new students for the transition into high school with a wealth of fun and valuable activities led by AHS Leadership Staff and trained junior and senior high school counselors. Students will learn helpful problem-solving techniques, build meaningful friendships, get the answers to high school’s Big Questions, and much more. If you have a cool talent (singing, playing music, poetry, dance, etc.) we’d love for you to perform at our Open Mic !

Students are assigned to a session based on their Grizz Academy classes-- if you are unable to attend your assigned session you are welcome to attend either of the other sessions.

Please arrive in the Science Parking Lot (corner of Siskiyou and Morse) at 8:00AM on the day of your session. Students will return to the same location at 2:00pm the following day.

DO BRING: Sleeping bag, pillow, sleeping pad, toothbrush, change of clothes, sweatshirt, sensible clothing and footwear suitable for outdoor workshops as well as musical instruments, songs, poems, stories and skit ideas for Open Mic.
