Oroville High School is a very good school, although Oroville High School is in a very small town. Many people often think that more educated students come from schools in a bigger town but I disagree. Oroville High School is a very good school because the teachers and staff there will do their best for students there. For example, stay after school and tutor or stay in class during lunch and help students who need extra help. Oroville High School also have this thing called “consultation.” Consultation is 30 minute long and it give students time to go to classes that they need to make up work in. Also this is optional. If you don’t need to make up anything you get an extra 30 minutes of lunch.

My experience at Oroville High School was great but there are some things that can be changed at the high school. I love the clubs that exists at the high school because all the clubs are very active in the participation of the members of the clubs. The facilities of the school are not very good in condition for instance the water fountains at the school is moldy and they don't work at all; Also the bathrooms are in the same conditions of the water fountains. The high school overall is great considering the teachers and clubs but physically, it's not.
The school was amazing. Being at Oroville High School gave me the greatest experiences of my life. Teachers put me out of my comfort zones and taught me how to express myself in many ways possible, gave me the courage to come out of my shell, and prepared me for a brighter future. The staff cared for us and our futures and made sure that we had the best treatment there possible. I couldn’t see any other surrounding schools being as amazing as Oroville High School was.
