Welcome to Hawthorne Alternative High School – Home of the Coyotes

Hawthorne Alternative High School is a public school (part of the Pendleton School District) that offers a variety of educational options for high school students.

Due to the fact many students enroll in Hawthorne severely credit-deficient, students are able to individualize their schedules based on their academic needs. Flexibility with scheduling offers many students an opportunity to work at a pace that allows them to recover credits and make progress toward completing their academic plans.

Students interested in attending Hawthorne Alternative High School are required to get a referral from Pendleton High School.

Students at Hawthorne are held to conduct standards consistent with the mission of the PSD. Staff members at Hawthorne are committed to helping students attend school regularly and conduct themselves appropriately at all times. Policies have been created and are in place to help students with attendance and/or behavior difficulties.
