Lake Oswego School District Reviews

The school district has always been good about communicating with families, arranging/organizing events where people of the community can voice their opinion and concerns, and as far as academic excellence goes has held it to be a standard. The question that their want for said "academic excellence" is, where's the line?- So, although I think that, yes, academia is super important, so is understanding and compassion. Having graduated recently from this district I know that those two qualities where surly lacking. Saying that I wasn't ready for college right off the bat sent administrative people into a tailspin and would often leave me feeling guilty.

I like that it has lots of classes that prepare you for college and offers lots of advanced classes like AP. It could be improved if there was some more involvement from counselors in the college application process, as I didn't know what to do until much later than I would have liked, and even then I had to hear what to do from my friends.
The Lake Oswego School District does a good job preparing students for continuing education. They need to work on their diversity of education. I would like to see more programs geared towards the trades. In addition, they are working on staff and student diversity, but there is still a lot of room to grow.
