Forest Grove High School Ratings & Reviews

June 25, 2016 Submitted by a parent
They have some amazing programs if your student is willing to take advantage of them. The Viking House gives students an opportunity to build a home every year. Our children have had a positive experience there. Like any high school there are issues. If you have students in advanced mathematics, they will need to survive a terrible precalculus teacher. That isn't the school's fault, that is the fault of the teacher's union. The sports, drama, and choir programs have all been great. They are all there to help the students succeed. If you don't like your experience then get involved and make a difference.

I'm completely disgusted with this school, honestly. My son has decided to stay on, however, our younger son will not step foot in that school. As the last reviewer explained well, proficiency tests being 90% of their grade teaches these students NOTHING. Oh, sorry, it does indeed breed complacency and procrastination. There are teachers that are really ineffective at their jobs with no control over their classrooms. In English class, students with no grasp of the language edit each others' papers to disastrous effect. The counselors side with the teachers when pressed. The administration seems to make things difficult on purpose. Our experiences there have been less than stellar, but here's the rub: as in everything, you get out of something what you put in to it. So if your child is prepared to take charge of their own education, then they'll succeed. If they struggle in the least to remain focused, they'll take advantage of the system and lose. My son was very prepared, academically, for high school...and then it all slipped away, slowly but surely.

My son barely graduated in 2012. They have to teach to the kids with the lowest I.Q., so it's not challenging. Homework is 10% of their grade and proficiency tests are 90%. So the kids don't do the homework to learn- it's too much work for so little grade. Then they flunk the exams which are 90% of their grade, but that's okay because they can keep taking the tests as many times as they need to in order to get a better grade. Time limits mean nothing- they can always turn things in late without affecting their grade. Walking through the hallways, the kids are rude to adults and I haven't met one student yet who loved the school. My son and his best friend graduated then both went on foods stamps because they didn't want to have to put forth any effort into working because they didn't have to at school, so why do it in real life? Very disappointed in this school.

This school is great and just recently got remodeled. Graduated in 2010 and saw first hand how this high school helped prepare me for college/carrer.

In general, Forest Grove High is a good school. They like to boast about their state testing scores a lot but they don't take into consideration that the system they use only teaches what the students need to know to pass the states tests. So, in the long run, they don't teach you stuff that you need in the future; they teach you stuff you need to pass the test. The AP classes that remain are also some what lacking. Unless you have a good teacher that is enthusiastic about the subject and would rather actually TEACH than be everyone's friend, then the AP experience will be better. What is really sad about this school is that most of the students aren't willing to contribute to their school. My graduating class had very little money to spend for prom and grad night. But most of the problems we had with money came from the people who managed it. Instead of looking at the funds we had and considering options other than the most expensive one, it was decided that we needed more money and created event after event to fund them. In short, financial management needs some work, they need to teach things that prepare students for the future, not just for tests, and find some good teachers
