Oregon City Senior High School Reviews

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.

I had a fairly good experience at Oregon City Senior High School ( OCHS ). As a quiet but liked and hardworking student I did not find OCHS a hard place to be myself. I do know though both through complaints from other classmates and my own observation that it is a tough place to attend if you are African American. I partially blame the rarity of seeing an African American person in this area, though it is becoming more of a common occurrence, but most of the blame rests on the way the students were brought up. The Latinos do not have a very difficult time because there are so many of them and I like to say that any self respecting Oregonian knows at least a little Spanish.
I loved almost all of my teachers and our sports and musical programs are quite good.
The school doesn't do enough to address the culture. We have a lot of issues with racism and homophobia. And while there are definitely some good, challenging classes, it feels like there aren't enough of those types of classes, especially when it comes to history and english. There are lots of science classes, however: Geology, Marine Science, Anatomy, Biology, Botany, etc. And we have a really good choir program. There could be more emphasis on art, though.
