Lake Oswego High School 2020-2021 Profile

  • Our Community

    A beautiful lakeside community with mountain views, Lake Oswego is located ten miles south of Portland, Oregon. Primarily a residential community with a population of approximately 40,000, Lake Oswego features the best of two worlds: the sense of community and quality of life that are part of small-town living, as well as immediate access to a culturally vibrant, metropolitan city.

    Our School

    Lake Oswego High School is a four-year comprehensive public secondary school that offers a challenging course of study aimed at meeting the needs of a predominately college-bound student body. LOHS is accredited through the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges. An alternating A day/B day schedule with four 90-minute classes daily is offered to all students. Extensive student activity programs include athletics, drama, music, dance, speech, clubs, and student government.
    Of the 86 faculty members, 94% hold a Masters degree. Student enrollment is approximately 1,300 students.

Grading System

  • Students receive letter grades based on their achievement in each class. A letter grade is based on the teacher’s professional evaluation of student achievement and mastery of course content. 

    Grade point average is determined using a four-point system for non-weighted classes and a five-point system for weighted classes. The grade point average and the weighted grade point average will be reported on student transcripts. 

    In addition, the non-counting grades of W (withdrawal) and 

    W/F (failing at time of withdrawal) may be assigned. 

    We do not rank, but we do recognize weighted GPA.
