September 29th, 2023, marked a new beginning for Amity School District 4J with the groundbreaking of the upcoming middle and high school project. This event, celebrated with community members and project teams, symbolized the start of an exciting journey towards enhancing our educational landscape. The scope of work for the Amity bond project includes renovating Amity High School, adding new spaces like a library and a competition gymnasium, and amalgamating Amity Middle School with the high school campus to form a shared-use facility. This merge will also introduce eight new classrooms, a science lab, and additional capacity for students Thank you to all who participated. The future looks bright!
Amity School District is committed to providing an educational system that enables each of our community’s students to reach their greatest potential for the lifelong benefit of each student and the betterment of our community and our country. We offer equal educational opportunities to all students.
It is with great pride and admiration that we honor The Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians. When the Oregon State Board of Education voted to ban Native Americans mascots, our students, staff, and community were disappointed. Members of our high school leadership class, staff and administrators testified before the Oregon Legislature. They shared what was happening at Amity High School and the results of surveys that had been conducted. We shared a picture (mural) that one of our Native American students had painted in our hall.
We believed that our school showed great pride, respect, and admiration for what it meant to be a “Warrior.” Prior to the ban taking effect, schools were given the opportunity to partner with a tribe and keep their mascot. Our partnership began in 2017 and would move the school district and the Tribe to work together so our young people would learn more about Native American History.
This relationship has meant so much to our school and community. Education, knowledge and communication are the foundation of all of us being the best we can be. Thank you to The Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians for making us better!
