Lake Oswego School District Reviews
Review Lake Oswego School District
Lake Oswego School District has high level courses and a wide range of different classes. Although it's academics are great, however, its atmosphere and students are not. The pressure of doing well and going to college at our school has been the cause of sleep deprivation, high stress levels, and mental illnesses at our school, and is becoming a very prominent issue. Another issue that I have noticed at my school is discrimination against minorities. I would like to change the obligation to succeed at our school, and in some way let students know that it is ok to take only what is a comfortable workload for the year. I would also like to change the fact that minorities in race, religion, gender, and sexuality are openly made fun of at our school, and help people to become more accepted and comfortable. As a mixed race and queer student myself, I find acceptance is an important factor when one wants to be able to feel comfortable in their own learning environment.
This District purports that they are all about Students, untrue. Many issues have arose that they don't address. I have an elementary student and a middle school student currently. Both schools have issues and the District does not address issues, nor do the administration at the specific schools. There is a serious lack of communication on both school levels and there is no parental inclusiveness nor any transparency. The district is asking the community to pass a three phase bond for new buildings and improvements to the tune of 531 Million Dollars, yet has not been transparent about what it's truly for and how it will be spent, where the students will be placed during rebuilds of schools etc. What if the bond doesn't pass in all three phases, no plan stated. At a point their will be an average of $900 more to all property tax owners taxes to cover all three bonds, most tax bills are currently half of tax going to LOSD. Plus the levy will be up for renewal in two years.
I love my high school. At Lakeridge you learn from teachers who genuinely love their jobs. The students are sincere and open, and the opportunities presented are so amazing. Whether you enjoy being on student government, playing sports, singing, acting, art, debate, or anything else, Lakeridge has that for you and tells you how to get there and how to be successful in whatever you're passionate about. A great place filled with great people.
