    Overall Experience: After mainly taking AP classes and being a member of the band, I had a very positive experience at Oregon City High School. I also gained lifelong friends while in band and several general classes.

    Overall Experience: With any 6A school, there are going to be a lot of students. But at Oregon City High School, it seemed to be more of a giant family. Sporting events from football to plays put on by the drama students were all highly supported by the student body. The Pioneer spirit is contagious and its a great place to branch out and see what arts and talents are right for you,

    Overall Experience: One of the most recent experiences I had with this school was it spending a lot of money for "Piofest" which was essentially a field day. This annoyed me because they forced everyone to go to it to justify the money they wasted and also tried to pass the day off as a regular school day. I don't have many experiences with other high schools but Oregon City High School is probably average.

    Overall Experience: They are way too strict about everything, making it an unpleasant environment. A lot of teachers were really great though making it better. I wouldn't send my kids here though in the future because I don't like the way the school is ran. I'd rather send them to a private school where they'll get a better education.

    Overall Experience: This school has provided me many opportunities to advance my learning, even when I was 12 years old. Because of this I feel like I am getting the best education I can, with the exception of a few teachers (which is to be expected - they can't all be perfect!)
