About This School
Alternative schools are public schools that offer nontraditional education for students whose needs cannot be met in a regular, special education, or vocational school. While alternative schools are distinct from regular, special education, and vocational schools in their teaching approach or classroom environment, they can provide similar services and/or curriculum for students. Alternative schools include schools for potential dropouts, residential treatment centers for substance abuse, schools for chronic truants, and schools for students with behavioral problems. See Opportunity Center's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, Opportunity Center had 27 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Oregon average is 20 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Opportunity Center Reviews
This school encouraged me to pursue and achive a High School Diploma.
Despite my home situation, and becoming a very young parent at the age of fifteen. I was given the opportunity to graduate and receive a High School Diploma. This school gave me the skills of a well rounded education. I am grateful for the experiences that were provided to me from an outstanding group of teachers. I was able to pursue employment in this community, for example, early childhood educator, retail manager, office manager, construction dump truck driver, and an Associates in medical Assisting.
Again, thank you.
@ former student.

So maybe you should shhhhh I never have & never will be homeless.
I love my OC family.
Opportunity Center was a wonderful school with great students when I was there. The first class to graduate in 1984. The school was by South Eugene High and now it is a homeless shelter.
