More About Hidden Valley FBLA and this FBLA site
The hvfbla.com website has been and continues to be designed and maintained by the students, staff and alumni of the School of Business and FBLA at Hidden Valley High. We think our school is a great place to learn and feel part of a community.
In addition, the School of Business tries to help students make connections with the local business community and learn through individual and coolaborative hands on FBLA projects. We bring the real world of career and employment to life with practical application, skill development, experimentation and experience. We are truly “training tommorow’s leaders through relevance, rigor and relationships!”
History & Location
Due to overcrowding at Grants Pass High School in 1977, Hidden Valley High School was created, along with two other high schools in Josephine County. Hidden Valley High School is nestled in between mountains and pine trees, making it the center of a remote valley. Hidden Valley’s natural setting has its advantages, such as fewer distractions than those in larger cities, and a smaller student body. Hidden Valley High School is located eight miles south of Grants Pass in Murphy, Oregon. Students are provided transportation to school every day from up to twenty miles away. The student population averages 840.
CITY OF GRANTS PASS
Grants Pass is located 250 miles south of the Metropolitan city of Portland. It is home to approximately 32,000 residents and is constantly growing. Grants Pass is known for its regal setting and the famous Rogue River, which attracts thousands of tourists every year.
The city’s motto was “It’s the climate” until about a decade ago, when the city’s commissioners decided to officially change it to “Where the Rogue River runs,” although the famous sign still hangs majestically where is has been since the 1920’s.
The city’s mascot is a caveman (because of the nearby Oregon Caves, which attracts even more tourists than the Rogue River). The Caveman stands proudly at the top of 7th Street at the north entrance of Grants Pass.
Even though Grants Pass is still growing, it still maintains that classic small-town atmosphere. Local business owners annually raise money for honorable causes.
The strong sense of community is the mindset that helps our local FBLA chapter thrive. Our town’s leaders and business owners are incredibly supportive of our efforts in the community..
Finally, the city of Grants Pass is a gold mine for the FBLA chapters in the area. Grants Pass is where volunteer opportunities and fantastic scenery brings in more residents, this makes the opportunities grow exponentially for FBLA.
Mascot & Color Rumors
For the past few years, the rumor of how Hidden Valley gained its mascot and colors has always been that they were decided upon by the 1977 playoff game between the Denver Broncos and the Oakland Raiders. Well, as the story goes, the broncos were victorious so HV became the school of orange and blue.
The Truth is, according to Jan Figoni who was a teacher here when the school opened, the future students that would be attending Hidden Valley came together and voted to decide what the school’s colors and mascot would be. And there you have it, the Blue and Orange Mustangs were born!
