About Our School:
Welcome to the Hosford Middle School family! We are glad you are here. Our mission at Hosford Middle School is Friendship - Learning - Commitment. Students and staff at Hosford are committed to building and maintaining relationships with each other and our community; learning about ourselves, others, and the world; and trying, persevering, and following through on rigorous academic and personal goals. We want every student and every family to feel welcome, included, and excited about learning and growing. If we can help or support you, please let us know! We believe relationships are important, and we want to know you and your student well.
Hosford is a Mandarin Immersion school; one quarter of our students are continuing Mandarin studies they began in elementary school. We partner with two middle schools in Suzhou, China for a yearly student exchange. We are also an AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) school, preparing all students for college readiness. We offer a large variety of electives for students, including Student Leadership, Mandarin (two levels), Spanish (two levels), Band (three levels), Art (three levels), Computer Technology, Woodshop, Game Design, PE/Wellness, and Mandarin Culture.
It is important to note that Hosford Middle School sits on ancestral lands belonging to The Confederated Tribes of the Grande Ronde Community, who were forcibly displaced from this area.
