Oroville Union High School District Reviews

My younger brother has struggled much of his school life, never having adequate resources for his learning needs. Often, he's been pushed from one special education program to the next, never getting the attention he needs to succeed. When we moved to Oroville, we expected to have this cycle repeated, more lengthy fights for what he should rightly have access to without much success. This was not the case, however. Not only do they have a program that he has thrived in, they really seem to care about his well-being and future. Since enrolling, he has made leaps and bounds academically. He has almost caught up completely, to the grade-level he should be at and actually enjoys doing his school work. The program offers the flexibility his needs require, without comprising quality. They've even helped him find his first job! He's on track to join a special program that will help him succeed with college as well. They've really helped my brother's life for the better.

I am currently a high school senior at OHS. Unfortunately I would have to say the education here isn't the best. For instance, during my Junior year I took a regular Math 3 class. I struggled to understand the concept and needed help, but my teacher couldn't fathom to think her teaching skills weren't reaching out to the class. The class average was never higher than a C. Once it was time for me to take the SAT's, there was barely anything to understand. However, the AP classes are are about average. Not too difficult, but easy to manage. I would like to see a change in the lack of care in the math department. Although I passed with an A, I would prefer to have actually understood what I was taught.
I love the support that the teachers provide with topics that associate with college and or college readiness. The amount of clubs that Oroville Union High School District offers is amazing with different amounts of varieties from Environmental club to Dance club. Overall, great experience attending Oroville High School. Not too small of a school, but not too large of an overwhelming population.
