Oregon City Senior High School Reviews
Oregon City High School has spirit, yes we do, we got spirit, how about you? Our student body is incredibly active and open. It is a vast minority of students that don't participate in a single club or activity, and I am grateful for that. Our assemblies and sports games are so loud and cheerful and active. We have spirit, yes we do, but what we also have are teachers that are not motivated. Many of the teachers are happy, caring, amazing, effective teachers, but there are far too many that treat it like nothing more than a day job. Not a medium to inspire the youth of America -- the future -- but something they have to get up for in the morning, drive to, get over with, so they can go home. This needs to change. We need to instill the students spirit into these teachers somehow, or (as sad as it is to say) find different teachers that have this spirit. I believe this is achievable and simple, and I hope it happens soon.
Generally as long as you're run of the mill average smart, you’ll be fine. But if you’re too smart for your own good, you’ll want to get out of there ASAP. Average teachers, quite a few who know not what they teach, and a few stellar ones (Becker, Bertram, Kline, Jeffrey come to mind...). If you’re here to ride the wave, great. But if you want to push yourself, you’re better off in another school district (or in 5 AP classes.. but why would you want to do that and have no life?) hyper focused on sports and under focused on arts. $5mil went to redoing the fully functional stadium off campus, while $0 comes to the Choir, drama, band, sciences.. who needs it. Oh well. You’ll only be there for 4 years anyways. Admin does little to nothing, you feel unprepared for college, but you’ll know the derivative of tangent(x)^2 though.
I became really involved and they have a lot to offer. The facilities are great, but the classrooms are overcrowded. This is a typical high school in Oregon, with an exceedingly better graduation rate than most. If you search for clubs and activities, you'll find a home. The drama, band, choir, student council, and sports are all families to many diverse types of students. The business department runs a store and the library is beautiful. Vice Principal Kathy Johnston cares about the students and is a lovely character with the perfect amount of friendliness and business. The parking lot is horribly designed, but the architecture is lovely. The theatre is superb, professional quality stage.
