My son just graduated on 6/14/07. He attended all four years at Charter Oak, and not once did he have to write a research paper. He wrote a minimal amount of essays, as well. So how is he prepared for college?

I graduating from Charter Oak I got accepted to Howard University Fine Arts Department. I've now graduated with a BFA.

I have a son at this school, and I think it is great. Very organized. The counselors are very attentive to the students. They go out of their way to accomodate student needs-free tutoring, night school, summer school, etc. Athletics is where you will find the most parental involvement and school pride, especially at the Friday night football games-not en empty bleacher to be found!

I graduated from this school a few years ago in the top 10 and went on to UCLA and now law school. I loved my experience. I had the benefit of diversity and balance. There are some negative energies but you just have to rise above it. People, at least when I went there weren't divided into typical cliques. Being involved is a choice, there are opportunities out there available, students just need to be proactive. I know I was busy everyday of the week with a different club activity.

There is a lot of harassment at this school. There needs to be a totally inclusive social program for the staff and students to raise motivation, not based on negative feedback (which per research is ineffective). When kids need support at this school, they're shown the gate.

The IB program is nice but without it there is nothing worth mentioning about this school academically. There in no debate team there is not an academic decathlon team over all this is an average school at best when it comes to higher learning. However it is a safe school for your student to go to and your child can have a nice high school experience there.

Our son is in the IB program (senior) and we are pleased that he went to this school. The program has prepared him well for college and life. I commend his counselor, teachers and staff for their wonderful support. Very tight knit community, safe environment. Thank you, Charter Oak High for making our son's high school experience a positive and memorable one!

The International Baccalaureate program at Charter Oak High School sets it apart from other schools in the area. The school is undergoing extensive modernization and has just opened a two story multi-purpose building to house science classes with labs, the dance classes and wrestling program.

Great School and academically they prepare the kids for college.

The quality of the academic programs are excellent. This school has IB courses and you can even get an IB Diploma in this school. They have all sorts of extra cirricular activities. Football, Basketball, Track & Field, Golf, Volleyball, Soccer, Tennis, and Baseball are all offered. I am not so sure about the music department, but I do know they have IB music courses. They also include IB Theatre Arts for any of you interested in drama. This year our Top 10 students were able to be accepted into the schools of their choice. We even got a girl that was able to get in Harvard University. Parents can be involved in this school. Of course this is an option.

We chose to do an interdistrict transfer to this school because of recommendations given to us by friends and because it had been a California Distinguished School at one time. What I did not know until the beginning of my daughter's first year was that the teachers had been working without a contract for several years and there is an apparent lack of budget for the most basic of supplies. For example, this year (2004/5) the teachers were told they did not have budget for making copies and that they would have to provide their own. After trying to work within this faulty framework for the past 1 1/2 years, we are transferring to another school with happier teachers and better access to materials needed for a proper education.

Charter Oak has the top teachers and most educated students. Though I must admit the children do not try, the school and techers are excellent.

Posted February 26, 2004

Charter Oak High School is a horrible school for our children to grow up in. At Charter Oak, my daughter and her friends have dealt with situations that effected their learning abilities, their safety, and their overall well being. Every year seemed to worsen at the school. It has a high harrasment level, And all the school can say is, 'What do you want us to do?' Why send your children to a school which keeps the bad in and the good out?

i was in the ib program too. it is a great school. not too rich or poor. no gangs. pretty peaceful. all others said like above. yeah.. tight community, seems everyone knows everyone else since little.


Posted August 26, 2003

I was in The IB program at Charter Oak and the education and attention I recieved was extrodinary. I was prepared for college and worked hard, but not so hard that I did not have time for clubs, sports, and friends. Also the clubs and sports programs were great. I would suggest this school to any parents who want there child to go to college, do something productive with their life, have fun in high school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
