Aloha High School is a suburban high school in Aloha, Oregon. It was recently renovated in 2006 to add additional classrooms, cafeteria space, and many windows, which the school was severely lacking (the new "H" and "K" halls have windows along one wall in each classroom). It is one of five public high schools in the Beaverton School District and a member of the Metro League for athletics. The school currently offers more Advanced Placement than any Beaverton School.

Traditions

* The pictures of all the student body presidents in Aloha's history can be found hanging on the walls outside of the administration office.
* Until the 2006 remodeling of Aloha High School, "Freshman Hill" was a popular subject among high school lore. Incoming freshmen were rolled down the hill to welcome them to Aloha High School. The renovation built new classrooms on the land that was once the hill. So, Freshman Hill became Freshman Cliff, referring to the roof of the new building that freshman are thrown off of.
* Scrawnalanis. One of the few surviving traditions that have carried on throughout most of the school's history (although the 2007-2008 school year is said to be its final year), senior males will cross dress and perform a dance at a school assembly- for comedic effect. It is also a play on the high school's dance team, the Analanis.
* It is a common belief among the student body that the school was once a prison, because of the building's total lack of windows.
