History

Lake Oswego High School were first opened in 1950. Since then it has grown from a six-year school to a three-year and (in 1971) to a four-year school. A broad range of academically challenging classes and strong programs in the arts and athletics provide opportunities to meet the needs of all students. In its history the school and others located in Lake Oswego, such as Lakeridge High School, have received many honors for scholarship, leadership, and athletics on the local, state, and national level.

From its location and name, Lake Oswego High School adopted a nautical theme, with a nickname of "Lakers."

LOHS's new building opened in 2005 and included a 500 seat theater and vaulted ceiling cafeteria.

In the fall of 2005 students entered a completely rebuilt building. Built on the same campus, the new building replaced the old one. Every classroom has built-in projectors and SMART boards. A state of the art theater and art classrooms, cherry paneling and green marble staircases grace the halls.

Construction of the new school included a new gymnasium. The new gym replaced the “old” gym and created a problem with naming the existing “new gym.” In 2004, the previously called “new” gym (which prior to being called the "new" gym, was called the "boy's" gym, after its construction in the early 1960's) was renamed the "East Gym" and the most recently constructed gym was deemed the "West Gym."

Academics

In 1983, Lake Oswego High School was honored in the Blue Ribbon Schools Program, the highest honor a school can receive in the United States.[2]

In 2008, 94% of the school's seniors received their high school diploma. Of 314 students, 294 graduated, 15 dropped out, 4 received a modified diploma, and 1 are still in high school.[3][4]

The school received a silver ranking from U.S. News & World Report's 2010 "America's Best High Schools" survey.[5][6]

Sports

The Laker Football team was ranked #2 in the state for the 08-09 academic year, undefeated the whole season, the exception being the state championship. The Lake Oswego Cheer Squad won state in 2008, bringing home LO's first state cheer championship. They also were ranked second in the nation at USA nationals that year.
