Oregon City Senior High School Reviews
Review Oregon City Senior High School
Life at OCHS is difficult to describe. On the one hand, my high school experience was not as bad as movies would suggest. There are many snooty students, but every time someone visits my school, they remark about how nice everyone is. People also love the modern architectural design of OCHS. The school was built recently, and is far newer than most other schools in the area. Everything is so grey, so dim, though. It's kind of depressing. My main problem is that I tried to get into extracurriculars during my junior year. I signed up for many clubs, but somehow never received anything about them later. It seems that the student council has a monopoly over most school activities, and therefore get first dibs. So for someone with no extracurriculars, it is definitely very difficult to get into these events. I'm not sure if I would go here again. It's a decent school, but the teachers are usually difficult to deal with, and I'm not sure how it stacks up against other schools. Actually, if I could do it all over again, I wouldn't. I'm glad it's over!
Teachers at Oregon City High School often do not care about their students in the way that students need. Personally, I can count on one hand (or half a hand, really) the teachers that I really cherished; the ones that really helped me succeed in my learning. And on the other hand, and both of my feet, and a big board full of tallies, I can count the amount of teachers that I absolutely detested. And for so many reasons! Unbelievably bad teaching methods, inability (or unwillingness) to connect with students, explosive tantrums, inconsistent grading, and inability to effectively communicate a simple concept. So many of my teachers would let the class get out of control and then blow up at us, multiple times in a class period. I usually leave my classes thinking,"Man, I could have taught that better, even if I were having an off day, or if I were on fire."
I love all the opportunities for college credit, and the teachers who teach the higher level classes really get to know their students and will be their to support them when needed. The rest of the school sucks. Too large of classes, crowded shoulder to shoulder hallways, and they kick students out who aren't meeting the school's academic standards before trying to help them. Seems to always be on the news for something, whether it's drugs, fights, accidents, teachers inappropriate contact with teachers, gay rights and cops are constantly there!
