Oregon City High School's principal, Nancy Bush-Lange will be retiring at the end of the school year. Mrs. Bush-Lange has led the school to achieve some of the state’s top reading and math scores.

"The staff has worked very hard to increase performance expectations," she said. "In addition to offering a full menu of classes, we have supports and interventions in place to help students overcome challenges sooner than later" she added.

In 2011 Mrs. Bush-Lange was awarded Principal of the Year. At the start of 2012 the City recognized her and the entire staff of Oregon City High School as Citizens of the Year.

Oregon City High School has received an outstanding rating from the state for the last four years. The school is one of only two schools in Oregon named to the Advanced Placement Honor Roll by the College Board. These accolades, along with the many opportunities available to students have made many proclaim OCHS as the best high school in the state.

"The accomplishments racked up during her tenure are absolutely amazing,” said Larry Didway, Oregon City School District’s Superintendent.

To help guide the process of selecting the next principal, a community survey has been created for those wishing to provide input. A new principal will be named in the spring after a rigorous selection process.

Mrs. Bush-Lange plans to spend her retirement traveling the country by RV. She will also stay involved in education doing consulting for struggling schools.
