Great community and activities. Sports is really significant part of this entire district. There are many friendly inter district matches that are motivating and help build effective communication and teamwork. However, the Beaverton High School district must work on teaching methods and curriculum. I could say that unqualified math instructors are dragging students behind. I could say for a fact that many exchange and transfer students find it relatively hard to adjust especially when they are a junior or senior because friends in certain high schools have already made friends from their freshman year. It will also be a challenge when new students are finding seats during lunch because they are so unfamiliar with the school.

Beaverton is a great school overall. Challenging courses, educated teachers and students that push themselves to acheive. The lack the experience to embrace their students of color, especially black and latino students. Their staff and student leadership do not reflect the student body. There are no black teachers and no black or latino students in leadership. They discuss how to engage students of color but they do not ask the students of color how to do it. The staff and students must buy in to wanting the inclusivity. There is a separation of students along socio-economic lines that is very apparent to the students. The wealthy are very encouraged in leadership as the parents are able to volunteer and be seen at the school. Most all of the administration and parents care about the students but do not know how to address the issues. I believe these are common issues in public school in the suburbs.
One of the reasons I love Beaverton High School is because we carry many traditions and care about inclusion of the student body. There are a few teachers, like many schools have, that do not exactly care about the students here, and that is a concern I have. Our school is also fairly old (over 100 years) and has had limited work done to renew it, although repairs are gradually being made. I do like the school spirit of our students and the willingness people have to try new things. Something that I really appreciate that not all schools have is the hard work our counselors put in to make sure we are college ready. They constantly arrange meetings with students and give advice on what to do in order to get prepared.
