OCHS gives students so many opportunities to excel, whether it is in the arts, humanities, engineering, and/or science. Their music program is truly spectacular. My children love their teachers. I like it that one of my children is able to be in CAIS - a charter school within OCHS, where the emphasis is on engineering and design, and still able to participate in music and sports. Another of my children was very successful in the business classes offered (DECA). My senior has taken many AP (such as Physics, Biology, Statistics, Geography) classes his high school years (is taking calculus this year) and has probably 2 years of college credits already. OCHS offers an abundance of clubs, and activities for students. One of my children plays football, lacrosse, track, and is part of the robotics team. Another is fully engaged in school participating in tech theater, JROTC, and Strength Team. My daughter cannot wait to go to high school to be a part of the equestrian team.

This is a wonderfuls school. It is very large, but the principal is experienced with a large student body and it shows. They have a variety of classes to choose from and plans for all levels of student capabilities. Many extracurricular activities are offered and encouraged. Safe environment and wonderful layout.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Oregon used the Oregon Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (OAKS) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math; in grade 11 in writing; and in grades 5, 8 and 11 in science. The OAKS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Oregon. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
