Our School » About


Rocky Heights was built in 1962 and named after the nearby rocky prominence known as "The Butte", which is the most noticeable landmark in the area. Together, teachers, students, parents, and community members make our school a positive place to learn. It is our goal to make education excellent, through character, pride, integrity, affirmation, and wellness.

Rocky Heights Elementary serves approximately 450 students from kindergarten through fifth grade in Hermiston, Oregon.
Our District

The Hermiston School District is the largest district in Eastern Oregon, exceeding 5,300 students, and continues to experience steady enrollment growth. It serves students in grades kindergarten through 12 with a broad range of programs from foundational learning skills to comprehensive vocational programs to an exhaustive array of post-secondary college credit bearing opportunities. The school district includes a 9-12 senior high school, two 6-8 middle schools, five K-5 elementary schools, an alternative school, and a robust online learning program option for students and families.

Support for the school district has been strong from the community. In 2001 voters approved a $39 million building program which included the re-construction of the high school, an additional elementary school, and various district-wide renovations. The voters also approved a $69.9 million bond in 2008. The bond served to replace Armand Larive Middle School, West Park Elementary, and Sunset Elementary.
