Corvallis High School, known as CHS, is a public high school that is located in Corvallis, Oregonmarker in the United Statesmarker.

Building

The original Corvallis High School was built in 1910, which is currently the site of Central Park in downtown Corvallis. When the 1935 high school opened, the 1910 building was converted to use as the junior high school until it was destroyed by fire in 1946.

The Corvallis School District selected the site for a new high school on the northwest edge of town. The second Corvallis High School building was an Art Deco structure constructed in 1935 through a local bond matched to a Public Works Administration grant and loan. The building was added on to multiple times in the 50's and 60's with the addition of the science and library wing as well as the cafeteria and big gym addition. In the spring of 2000, after the district finished a seismic analysis of its 17 schools, it was decided that the building was unsafe for student use. A group was put together to decide whether a replacement school should be built on the existing site or at an alternative location. It was decided that the replacement should be built on the existing site, favoring the central location over the opportunity to gain more land at an alternative location. This decision also required the old building to be demolished which upset some citizens who believed the building to be a historic treasure to the town.

In an effort to save the structure, the building was nominated and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2003. However, in the spring of 2004, construction began on the new building and the historic building was demolished in late fall, and thus it was removed from the register. Several small architectural items from the original school were salvaged and used in the new building, including two of the brass chandeliers from the school's original auditorium, and two wrought iron 'Juliet'-style balconies from the school's east-facing facade which were integrated into the new theater.

The new Corvallis High school (third Corvallis High School building) was opened in the fall of 2005. The school's theater seats 620.
