School Reviews

  • Recommended January 19, 2012 - No i would not send any of my future grand-kids there.Both my daughters went there.One asked to be home schooled by her 10th grade yr.By my the time my youngest was in her 10th grade yr she was hooked on pot and meth.Told me easy to score at school.I received no help from teachers or staff.They acted as if there was no problems in there school.My youngest is now home schooled and off drugs,thanks to no help from oroville high.So if you want your kid left behind send them if not home school. - Posted by Parent
