About » About


Armand Larive is a middle school of 650 students in rural Eastern Oregon. The original school, located on Ridgeway Avenue, was built in 1936 and was once home to Hermiston High School. It was demolished, relocated, and replaced with a modern facility in August 2011. We appreciate the support from our community in providing our kids with outstanding educational facilities.

Our mission is to work together as a community of learners who are Responsible and Accountable for Maximizing Potential.

The Hermiston School District is the largest district in Eastern Oregon, exceeding 5,300 students, and continues to experience steady enrollment growth. It serves students in grades kindergarten through 12 with a broad range of programs from foundational learning skills to comprehensive vocational programs to an exhaustive array of post-secondary college credit bearing opportunities. The school district includes a 9-12 senior high school, two 6-8 middle schools, five K-5 elementary schools, an alternative school, and a robust online learning program option for students and families.

Support for the school district has been strong from the community. In 2001 voters approved a $39 million building program which included the re-construction of the high school, an additional elementary school, and various district-wide renovations. The voters also approved a $69.9 million bond in 2008. The bond served to replace Armand Larive Middle School, West Park Elementary, and Sunset Elementary.
