Overall very good teachers, great facilities, and school promotes safe and respectful environment. Lot's of opportunities for different friend groups, athletics, and arts - something for everyone. Academics are highly valued, and there is very good counselor support for college. School could use some more diversity, but most students are open minded - with a few exceptions. It's been a really good four years, and my friends and I are ready for college.

Academically excellent. I was extremely prepared for my freshman year of college. There's a reason its considered to be the best high school in Oregon (performance-wise). Teachers are insightful, well qualified, very helpful and want you to succeed. The culture can be tough sometimes. It tends to be a bit stiff, with a heavy focus on clique-based social interaction, and diversity is limited (both ethnic and socioeconomic). It's a competitive school in a wealthy and aspirational community, and as such, the culture has very high expectations for almost every facet of life. Many students are very gifted and broadly talented. Lake Oswego is not for the faint of heart, the workload is tough and the culture can be frustrating at times, however, if you students who attend will emerge an extraordinary student and a very resilient person.
Lake Oswego High School is a great college preparation school, however sometimes it is a little too college focused. I have found that I spend so much time focusing on academics that I sometimes lose sight of the traditional high school experience. Although students have attempted to make the student body more supportive and spirited, most efforts have done little to nothing to help. There is also a bit of a disconnect between the students and administration. Overall I enjoy going to school here, but it is not hard to spot some of the weaknesses that our school faces collectively.
