Lopez High School

Lopez High School- A Passion for Learning

Lopez High students receive a high-quality education distinguished by small class size, robust academics, support for multiple learning styles and opportunities in athleticsartmusicdrama and overseas travel that are . Our program is designed to enable all students to achieve their own level of success. Some of our students pursue vocational training after graduation and about 85% choose higher education. Colleges and universities love our students. In the past few years, seniors have been accepted at Bates, Brown, Colorado College, Scripps, Harvard, Vassar, Deep Springs, Fairhaven, MIT, Johns Hopkins, Stanford, Reed, George Fox University, the military academies, Willamette, PLU, and the University of Washington. Our community regularly supports graduates with about $30,000 in annual scholarships. With a senior class averaging only about twenty students, that level of financial backing often makes a dramatic difference.

Academics, many taught on an inquiry-based learning model, include a focus on global education. In addition to offering a comprehensive roster of basics, students can choose AP coursework in English, and Art. A variety of eclectic electives encourages students to explore new fields or dig deeper into favorite topic areas.

OSPI Report Card

"There's a lot more opportunity for kids to grow and discover who they are, and who they want to be, here. Our kids were in private school, however, we wanted to get them out of the big city, to experience something different. We wanted a safe, loving community. Lopez has been a wonderful choice for our whole family."    —Lopez High School parent, 2009
