For example, Columbia River HS is the smallest in the Vancouver district, and some of the neighborhoods might not be as fancy as in Felida and Camas, but Columbia River is currently the only high school in our area offering the International Baccalaureate program. It far exceeds the more well known honors and advanced placement classes in its reputation among colleges.
Another example: If you have a daughter who excels in basketball, Prairie High School, which covers the southern portion of the Battle Ground School District, has had a killer team for years.
And just one more: If your child shows talent in drama, music, art and also academics, don't get outside the Vancouver School District. Why? The School of Arts and Academics in downtown Vancouver is by audition and application only, and is so popular that it no longer goes outside the Vancouver School District for applicants.
Finally, one more benefit to being within the Vancouver School District is that your child can attend any school you like as long as there is room and you are able to transport them.
I'd be happy to help you answer any other specific questions you might have.

The best neighborhoods for high school academic and athletics would be anywhere in Felida (Teal Pointe, Horizon West, Ashley Heights, Lakeview estates, etc..), Salmon Creek (Sherwood, blueberry hill), any neighborhood in the camas school district, the new Union High school in Camas has a fantastic athletic department and are dominating in football right now. Hope this helps...
