I am a freshmen for this school i love it. It might be a big campus but i like how it is big. this school is like a collage-like campus. it has tons of clubs, sports, and activities. plus cool electives.
I am currently a Senior having attended all four years at Los Osos. I love it! It is by far the best high school around. I never feel unsafe. (Ive maybe seen 3 fights the whole time I've been there) The counselors and teachers actually care about me and my future after high school. (College is a frequent discussion) We currently hold the highest API score for San Bernardino County and we are darn proud of it. Some parents accuse us of being 'snobby' and 'cliquish.' Yes, we are the 'new school' but we are some of the nicest students who happened to get lucky with a great school. There is a small percentage of students that are extremely wealthy. That does not, however, characterize the rest of the student population as 'materialistic.' Los Osos provides the best possible opportunities for your child to succeed. I highly recommend LOHS.
School is great for academics, best in district. However for the students, socially, it is very 'cliquish' as a previous review had stated. The mere area that the school had boundaries for tend to be wealthier families, therefore wealthier, more superficial and materialistic kids. But also better academics. So, the school = good academics, but gives off a small little town feel; definitely does not prepare you for large college campuses and campus life. former student of 08
Los Osos continues a very strong tradition of Academic and Athletic excellence unmatch in the area. Los Osos was recognized recently as one of the finest High School in the United States. Children are really pushed academically but they also provide all the tools kids need to succeed. My children were very fortunate to attend Los Osos.
After coming from the San Bernardino School District I can tell you that Los Osos is like being in a private school with superior educators and enforcers of rules. Parents really do care about their children's education here as well as the staff. I have never experienced such connections with the counselors and teachers to insure the success of my children in college. My daughter's counselor met with me 3 times her Senior year to make sure we were all on the same page for her goals for college. I couldn't believe that they cared like I did. My last district, the counselor s are dealing with so many disciplinary problems that the good students get lost in the shuffle and you really have to stay on top of your children s education goals. LosOsos has been a huge blessing for my family! I call this a public school of success!
Highest scores in the Chaffey School District. Wonderful, caring staff and excellent academic achievement programs to assist your teen the whole step of the way.
Los Osos is an amazing school. The teachers are always wulling to help the students and the counslers are great they make sure the students have all their requirements for college. My daughter graduated in 07 and is doing great in college my son will graduate in 2010 and I am sure he will also do great thanks to all that he has learned at Los Osos
I have two students in Los Osos High School and am extremely pleased with this school. The teachers are very approachable and are always there for the students. They take the extra time for any one student that needs it. The school grounds are amazingly clean and both our children love their school, their teachers, their sports and really have pride when they tell people where they go to school. We are very blessed that our children are students in this school and very excited to know that our younger two children will be students there soon as well. Academically, our children are getting the best education that is certainly getting them ready for their college years.
I absolutely love my school. I'm a Junior and have loved the past three years I have spent there. The teachers are great and there are so many extra curricular activities to choose from. There is something there for everyone.
This school is just great and the test scores are well above those other great cities.
I've been going to Los Osos for four years, and am graduating in June. I am so blessed to have been able to attend such an amazing school. I believe that it has helped me to acheive much throughout my high school career. I am so grateful for the wonderful teachers and staff at Los Osos that genuinelly care about the students, without them, our school would not be as amazing as it is!
I feel so priveledged to have my children attending Los Osos! I can honestly say that a majority of the teachers here really do care about the success of their students. Although the academics can be demanding at times, there are always resources available to get the assistance needed. Mr. Mitchell the Vice Principal really supports all of the activities and clubs and is very approachable for the students to come to. No matter what the students interest, there is a spot for them at this school or they welcome the opportunity to start something new. They certainly seem to create an environment of tolerance and the school has a small town feel for a very large school. When they throw a tailgate party everyone shows up! My only complaint is the parking is inadequate, but show me a school in California that doesn't have this problem.
I am thrilled with the school. My son is a Senior this year and my daughter graduated in 06...This school prepares them for college.
Entering year two at Los Osos and I can truthfully say I am not impressed. The teacher's could care less if the kids pass or fail. They give so much homework until your weekend's are spent at home so that your kid can complete the unbelievably heavy assignments. This school is very cliquish.
The only word I can describe Los Osos with is-wonderful! This coming August I am going to be a Senior at Los Osos High. The past three years have passed by so fast and with complete satisfaction. There are many different clubs and sports to join and tons of different classes to choose from! This year, our school was evaluated by WASC, and they gave us a 6 year accreditation! We have received many 'Best in the West' awards which makes everyone who steps foot in Los Osos think of the school with very high standards. The Principal couldn't be better, and the counselors make sure the students are set for their future by the time they are ready to graduate. I would highly recommend this school even to those who live on the other side of the globe! Amazing school which welcomes new students with open arms.
i am about to be a senior at los osos and let me tell you, i love the school. My past three years have been amazing, from academics to athletics my time has been amazing. Last year i had the privledge of having two teachers who had pHDs, one in english the other in chemistry, and i passed both the AP tests i took. My counselor, Mrs. Murphy, has done an amazing job at accomodating my every need in order to achieve goals for my future. Mr. Hollister is doing an amazing job and i hear he is going to be Dr. Hollister soon! This is truely an amazing school with tons to offer!!
I go here and the teachers,school,area is amazing.Im glad I get to go to a school like this
As a student at LOHS I love it. In academics, I have a lot of options for regular, honors, AP and elective classes. In athletics, I also have a lot of options. LOHS has the best football program, back to back league champs and CIF playoffs. It also has great track, swim, waterpolo, tennis, softball, baseball, volleyball, basketball, and golf programs. There are a wide array of clubs, which can meet any interest. We have the best API scores in the district and county. LOHS is like a large family.
My son's class was the first to graduate after attending all four years. This is an outstanding High School. The teachers came from so many varied backgrounds. One was an Attorney, Another a Pharmacist. Teaching both academically and applied knowledge. Music Programs, both instrumental and voice, Football, Track, Color Guard and Drama are among the best in the County. If ever a problem, Security and Police nipped it in the bud. Wonderfully Modern physical campus. Travel clubs is great, too!
