LOHS Drama offers some mystery
The Lake Oswego High School Drama Department is putting on "The Big Hotel: A Musical Murder Mystery" next week.
The show is scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday-Saturday, May 26-27, and 2 p.m. May 27 in the auditorium of the school, located at 2501 Country Club Road.
The cost is $10 for general admission and $5 for students and seniors.
Local ensembles make it to state
Ensembles from local schools advanced to state in a musical competition last week.
Lakeridge High School and Lake Oswego High School bands and orchestras all earned a place in the Oregon School Activities Association's band and orchestra championship. The ensembles did not take home hardware from the competition, but they still performed among the best groups in Oregon. OSAA masked the final scores after fifth place.
"To us, the numbers that the judges put down aren't as important as the pride the students take in the actual performance," LOHS band teacher Andrew Desmond said.
Artistry and musicianship are the most important things for students to learn, Desmond noted.
Local sophomore earns perfect score on ACT
Lake Oswego High School sophomore Allen Zhang earned a rare perfect score on the ACT college entrance exam.
Zhang received a 36 out of 36. The ACT is composed of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science, and each is scored on a scale from 1-36. The final score is actually an average of the four test scores.
On average, less than one-tenth of 1 percent of students who take the college entrance exam receive the best possible score, an ACT press release says. Last year, 2,235 of the almost 2.1 million high school graduates received such a score.
"Your exceptional scores will provide any college or university ample evidence of your readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead," the ACT announcement to Zhang said.
Zhang's family provided The Review with the announcement, as the ACT does not release private test scores to newspapers.
No other local students received a perfect score this year. But an unidentified student at Lakeridge High School who graduated in the class of 2016 did earn a perfect score, ACT Senior Director of Media & Public Relations Ed Colby told The Review.
