Welcome to Adrian School District

Adrian is a small community located in Eastern Oregon, bordering the Snake River.  The community roots include industries of farming, ranching, and dairy occupations.  Owyhee Reservoir (a model for the Hoover Dam) offers recreational activities of fishing, boating, and camping.  Scenic interests include Leslie Gulch, Three Fingers, Devils Gate, Owyhee Canyon Lands, and the historic Oregon Trail.

The Adrian School District includes a K-8 school and high school.  The district recently opened the doors to a new K-8 school building. The school district operates on a four-day week schedule with alternating R/SD (Remedial/Staff Development Day) Friday.  Regular classroom instruction is held Monday-Thursday.  R/SD Friday schedule concentrates on student assistance toward academic studies (individualized teacher assistance, study groups, peer tutoring), class meetings, advisor/advisee conferences between staff and students, and staff development.

The Adrian community originally consisted of five grade schools: Kingman Kolony, Owyhee, Wade, Lower Bend, and Ridgeview. The Adrian High School was built in 1939, the Class of 1940 being the inductee graduates.


Owyhee Reservoir

Fifty-two miles long, the Owyhee Reservoir (also referred to as Lake Owyhee and Owyhee Dam) offers some of the most spectacular vistas in the west.  The reservoir contains excellent fishing for crappie, bass, trout, and catfish.  Individuals interesting in sport fishing may fish the river below the reservoir for brown trout.  Picnic areas, boat launches, and a few beaches surround the Owyhee Reservoir. Tour guides of the dam are available.

Leslie Gulch & Succor Creek

A scenic wonderland known primarily for its towering and colorful geology.  Wildflowers, rock cliffs and unique landscape formations create a sense of uninhibited beauty.

Owyhee River & Canyon Lands
