Lake Oswego High School 2019-2020 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 39,000, 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.

LOHS is accredited through the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges. An alternating 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.

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. 

    Current Senior Class size is 330.

  • College Attendance 

    Of the 324 graduates from Lake Oswego High School in 2019, 88% reported that they planned to enroll in a 4-year or 2-year college.
