West Linn-Wilsonville School District Reviews
Rating 4.17 out of 5 29 reviews
Its a good school district with lots of great schools. the west linn side is ok the high school doesn't really help kids one on one. the Wilsonville side is great the high school is fairly small and definitely helps students one on one. overall its great and would recommend if you live anywhere near.
I thought that the overall education quality was good and I was always kept at a high standard in the administrations eyes. I do think that the environment of the school itself and the social pert could have gone better for me.
Great district - caring teachers. Lacking in good English teachers, but AP teachers are amazing. Lack of swimming pool is a big negative.
I loved going to school here and they have tons of connections and resources but the counselors and administrators are not very helpful with questions and planning until you take it up with the principle.
I love the teaching staff and support. Everyone is super friendly and welcoming to the district. I'd say one thing the district could work on is sharing more resources to families who are aren't as well off financially, especially when it comes to finding out more about college.
In terms of academics, the school does well and I feel like I am learning a great deal. My problem with the school is the inherent discrimination minority groups are faced with on a daily basis with seemingly no action from admin. People of color, women, and those of the LGBTQ community have felt continuously oppressed by certain students in the school. As someone who isn't expressively religious or a "born Christian", the students of this school have treated me and others as less of a person. It all goes to show the lack of response from the admin and the intolerance the students of the school has for people who are not white Christians. This behavior is unacceptable and I am frankly appalled that this oppression is still going on after years of mistreatment. Had to be said.
Great education! Math department is a year ahead of all others in the area. Teachers care about their students. Wilsonville athletics aren’t great, but West Linn’s are. The softball program isn’t very good for either school.
I wish there was more diversity. There are some problems with racism. I do like the teachers for the most part and the overall school spirit that flows throughout the school.
Great athletic programs at Wilsonville! A lot of amazing opportunities in music, choir and incredible theatre program
My experience in the West Linn-Wilsonville School District has been very positive overall! All the teachers are very helpful and encouraging. I feel welcomed by the environment and find it very empowering how students feel safe to protest outside the school. Not only are academic classes great, the arts programs are incredible as well. I have taken band for three years and our band programs are exceptional! We may not win state every year but we are very supportive of one another and we love to make music. One flaw is that there are very few students of color and almost no teachers of color. By hiring a more diverse group of teachers students of color would feel more comfortable at school. I also have noticed that some clubs and activities are prioritized over others. As a dancer at West Linn High School, I would appreciate if we were allowed more time in the main gym. I find that we often get second choice when it comes to who gets the main gym.
This district has always created a good learning environment. There are ample opportunities for students to get involved in the community, and the people are very nice. The academics are also high quality, the sports teams are inclusive, and the after school programs are fun for the kids. Overall this is an excellent district.
West Linn is a great community with lots of support from students, teachers and parents. They are strong in all athletics with great school support. Most teachers are very helpful. The school is a little crowded and there isn’t enough parking.
Above and beyond academically. Striving for nothing but the best. They will help you do what it takes to get there.
I have lived in Wilsonville all my life. When I walked into the high school my freshman year I knew it was going to be a very special 4 years.
West Linn School District provides students with a high quality, engaging education from caring and knowledgable teachers and staff.
Wilsonville high school is probably like most other schools. Some teachers are great like Mrs. Hamer and mr. Fowler and others are not as good. This school is pretty divided when it comes to classes theres the kids who were put in advanced math in sixth grade and then the ones who wernt and pretty much there isn't a whole lot of cross over between the two sections I guess.
Classes are challenging, and there's a lot of AP courses offered. The downside is the community as a whole, and the teachers. At least half the teachers our good, while the others have terrible attitudes. It especially is upsetting to be in a AP course with a teacher that won't help you improve. Most students are super competitive, and there's not a lot of diversity. Over all, it's academically good, but socially terrible.
