LearnBoost welcomes Glencoe High School
Glencoe High School is a public secondary school in Hillsboro, Oregon's Hillsboro School District. It was founded in 1980 to help control the growing density of Hillsboro High School due to the city's rapid expansion, and is the second oldest of the four high schools in the city. Glencoe is classified as a 5A school for activities and sports. It takes its name from the former community of Glencoe where the school is located. In 2003, the school, along with all schools in the district, made national news when 17 days of classes were cut from the school year which allowed students to be out in May due to budget cuts to education in Oregon.
Glencoe's mascot is the Crimson Tide. The official Crimson Tide icon is known as The Tide Guy, and is portrayed as an angry wave with fists. The Tide Guy is on nearly all official school mailings, and is often placed in the yearbook as if he were a student. The official mascot at football games and selected other events is Captain Crimson. Captain Crimson was adopted in the early beginnings of Glencoe High School, because The Tide Guy would have proved difficult to accurately portray in costume form. The Captain Crimson uniform consists of spandex tights, a spandex long-sleeved shirt with 'Captain Crimson' emblazoned on the front, a pair of crimson basketball shorts, a crimson and black cape, and large prosthetic muscles. The position is ceremoniously handed down through student council to an unusually enthusiastic incoming senior.
Glencoe offers the following Advanced Placement courses:
Glencoe has won state championships in track and field, men's and women's basketball, and football (twice, in 1986 and 1994). The school belongs to the Northwest Oregon Conference, and in the 07/08 season won its first state championship in soccer. Its cross-town rival is Hillsboro High School. Since opening, the school has used the off-campus Hare Field for hosting football games.
The school has been state champions in the following sports in the following years:
Glencoe is recognized for its Dance team, also known as the Tidettes. The team has won twelve out of the last seventeen state championships in the Large Show Division in Oregon, placing 5th in 2007 and 4th in 2008.
