We are looking at moving to Roseburg. We hope to make this a long term permanent residence. Looks like good shopping, outdoor recreation opportunities, health care, etc. but what about schools? Is the area family friendly. What are the best schools and the best parts of town or best places close by. How is the air quality? I will be working near the airport? My wife and I have 4 small kids so we are interested in elementary, middle and high schools- like I said we are coming for the long term. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I am a little confused by the "Family Friendly". I would think any school was family friendly.

It's as family friendly as any small city. There's only one high school, which is the largest in the state. It should have been split up years ago, but people are afraid to lose their championship football team. It's a real Friday Night Lights sort of town. If your kids are not All American candidates and want to participate in varsity sports, pick one of the smaller surrounding communities. You don't say where you are from, but Oregon has a lousy education system and RHS has one of the highest dropout rates in the state. However, if your kids perform above moron level they can hop a bus to UCC and the school district will foot the bill for their tuition. The brighter students don't really go to high school in Roseburg. UCC is out at Winchester. The Winchester area would be an easy commute to the airport, but the whole town is not that big and traffic jams are almost unheard of.

Air quality is normally great, except when Southern Oregon catches on fire. Then it can get hard to breathe. It doesn't happen every year, but when it does I don a carbon canister HEPA filtered respirator, and I don't have any lung problems.

Roseburg has a population of about 22,000, except for 8-5 M-F when the population is about 50,000. Douglas County has allowed massive housing development outside the city limits. People don't pay city property taxes, but enjoy all the benefits of the city, except for things like sidewalks, street lights and such. They drive into town to work, then go home at 5. Winchester is unincorporated, but has whole housing developments. Unincorporated urbanites fight like rabid wolverines when the city tries to annex an area.

Larry, there are at least 30 high schools in Oregon that are bigger than RHS. In fact, David Douglas (Portland) has almost twice as many students.

From this we see you are both off in your numbers ......


Roseburg is not the largest and David Douglas is not twice as big.


Roseburg High School - Roseburg, OR - Total Enrollment: 2052
David Douglas High School - Portland, OR - Total Enrollment: 2767


But Roseburg is the largest rural school in the state

Fullerton elementary school is great and Fremont is a good middle school. Only one High School Roseburg high as mentioned above.

Stay on the West side of town. I have lived on both sides and have found there is a better quality of life West of I-5.
