  • 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

Are the Three Rs Robbing our Children?
For far too long the American public school system has failed to address “out-of-school” factors like poverty and their impact on what happens in the classroom. As the nation continues to become increasingly diverse, many schools are adopting comprehensive approaches to education that account for the unique needs of students so that each child is prepared for their future and not just for a year-end test.

Several other states have also taken measures to reject the standards, which has some education officials concerned about the quality of instruction students in those states will receive.
