Lake Oswego Senior High School Reviews

220 reviews

As a product of attending both an LA county school and NY suburban HS, both with higher rankings, I can tell you that regardless of where your kids attend HS, they will find cliques, food that is sub-par to your home cooking, administrators that don't have time to provide 1 on 1 counseling, and people that do not understand them or love them unconditionally as you do. What LOHS does have is a beautiful campus with excellent facilities. The teachers are highly competent /well educated. The Principal could have easily chosen to be Provost at a top 10 Private Boarding School based on his Oxbridge education. Even some of the athletic coaches are IVY/Elite college-educated. What is lacking is serious college prep for the middle 50% and some of the upper 25% which is more of a free for all if you are not fully engaged in making sure your kids study for the SAT/ACT/APS/SubjectTests. The top 10% all get into Elite colleges which is typical of similar schools.

I felt that Lake Oswego High has everything to offer young adults. The teachers in the STEM field have the highest degrees and certifications in their professions. The sports teams are supported by the student councils. The counseling staff is always aware and takes time to talk us through whatever trials we had. The school was predominately white, but they were very open and respectful to all those that were not caucasian. Lake Oswego High pushes all the students to their extremes to help them grow academically, physically, and maturely. The students are given all the tools they need to achieve in their interests and passions.
Good academics, but weak in comparison to the rest of the U.S. However, a lot of the things I learned I will never use again in the future. The same applies to sports, since competition in Oregon is very very weak. Kids at school can be very mean and hurtful and disruptive, and teachers are slightly above average. Safety is very good, however lots of smoking and drugs at this school. Diversity sucks. This school is good if you are like everyone else and enjoy cliques, if you are different than the norm, don’t go here. It’s not worth you’re time.
