I love LOHS. Everything about it is so enjoyable and I had a very fun four years here. The sports here are focused on heavily, which makes attending any game really fun... definitely a highlight of my time here. Majority of the staff is involved and caring and I feel ready for college.
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.
Very prestigious schooling, sports and clubs. Everything about this school is great. The top school in Oregon for a reason. Went here for four years and lived in LO my whole life, nowhere else even compares to it.

Lake Oswego High School is an excellent academic school, with good athletics and arts programs. The teachers are for the most part very smart and helpful. There are some odd traditions and processes that are perplexing, but they are not enough to make it a bad school.
This school is an athlete's dream school, but artists and performers will be very frustrated with this school. They underfund the arts programs and almost no students or faculty care about the arts programs and accomplishments (which are huge and plenty!!)
This school is absolutely NOT diverse what so ever. There are only 3 African-American students in the freshman class alone. So if this is what Lake Oswego calls diverse, then it's the most diverse community you'll ever live in.
Great school that prepares you for college! Its is a very safe school and the teachers care for you. Teachers here make sure to make time to help, if asked.
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.
LOHS offers its students by offering challenging classes and curriculums. Students are very academically driven. There isn't a lot of diversity in the student body, racially and culturally.
If your looking for a school with challenging classes to excel in and become prepared for college, than this is the high school for you. Now, from what I noticed, if you need any sort of of special education than I would turn to a private school.
For the most part, this school has phenomenal teachers and opportunities to learn a wide range of subjects. It can be rigorous, depending on which classes you take, but most of the teachers will make sure that you understand the content you are given.
The best thing about Lake Oswego High School was the academics. Although there were definitely questionable teachers, the school did an excellent job making sure the students were learning to their fullest. School culture was very divided because there wasn't much diversity in the school, but despite the difference, everyone had his/her own best experience.
Excellent academics and preparation for college. A good range of class options. Wonderful teachers. Lacks diversity.
Great learning, great people, great teachers. I love pretty everything about my school. Everyone here is really nice and kind. A lot of people hate the social environment at LO, but I think it is great.
LOHS is a great school. Whether it is the academics, the students, the sports, or the abundance of extra curricular opportunities LOHS has everything I could have asked for out of a high school.
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.
I really like Lake Oswego High School because of the vibe the school creates, and the teachers there are all so friendly and helpful!

Teachers are amazing!! They all value and care about every student and their specific needs. Special Education resources are amazing at LOHS.
The school itself is fantastic academically, but the community needs improvement. Lake Oswego is a very affluent town, and man of the community members have been raised to be close-minded and entitled. Although there is not an overwhelming appreciation of diversity, there are nice people who go to this school, and the teachers are very willing to guide their students. The school highly prepares students for college.
Very grade focused with over-challanging course load. Intense comunity, and outwordly friendly faces. Hidden difficulties abound.
