My experience at Hosford middle school certainly is, an experience. Currently, I am attending Hosford as an 8th grader. I'd describe my experience as quite average, maybe even bad at some points. Just like any other school Hosford experiences bullying and drama. Every so often there is a fight in the hallways. Just ignore it and you'll be fine. I've mainly stuck to one friend group throughout my years here. Of course, our school has troublemakers; kids who do drugs, vape, skip class, etc. I'd say at the moment our theater program is obsolete, and there is no choir program. LGBTQ+ wise, there are many clubs such as the queer-straight alliance and the gender-queer alliance that will allow you to be yourself and make for a welcoming environment. We have teachers that are amazing, and teachers that I would prefer to never interact with again. Hosford is what you make of it, and whether that is a good thing or a bad thing, it's what it is. We live in a society. -Dorian M.

It would have been "it's the worst" if it weren't for Mr. Bacon, the widely loved principal. He is more involved with students than teachers are. There aren't guidance counselors and the office staff are usually pretty grumpy.
There is no workload at all. The only topics you might have homework in are algebra and geometry, which only a small percentage of students take. However, even in these classes the teaching is below average. They eliminated the advanced English class available for 8th graders who scored high on the OAKS testing the year after I graduated, but when I was in this class we didn't learn anything. The sciences were literally useless and the only reason I know anything about science is because of the school I went to before Hosford. However, I wouldn't suggest moving out of the district to avoid Hosford, as I am now a Junior at Cleveland, which is extremely academically rigorous. But I implore you to send your kid to a different school, whether within the PPS system (Sellwood and Winterhaven are good) or outside of it, as Hosford will not prepare students for the rigor of Cleveland's coursework.
