Right now middle and high school students in Warm Springs have to get up early to catch a bus to attend school in Madras, 20 miles away.  When the new K-8 school just approved is built by the fall of 2014, middle school students will go to school in Warm Springs.  But high school students will still go to Madras high.

 

So that's why Tribal leaders are looking at possibly opening a charter high school.  509-J School Board Member Laurie Danzuka:  “It is still in the early beginning stages.  We have a team working on this.  We’re looking at once we vacate the older school, could we possibly use that as the high school.”  Currently, many Warm Springs High School students, especially if they play sports, must be up by 5 a.m. to catch buses and don't return home until after 7 p.m.
