Once the hidden jewel of SGV, this school has declined significantly over the years. Although the campus is nice, the teachers are highly stressed, impatient and sarcastic. They also attempt to overly influence the students with their own personal views: pretty mean and uptight with the exception of a small few. The positives about COHS are that they have a very good AVID, music and sports program and the office staff are polite and helpful. However, the attitudes of the General Ed teachers could use a complete makeover and their coping skills improved. Public schools used to be a place where children were challenged to learn and grow in an environment that was positive and helpful. Now teachers seem to project their own stress onto the students in an environment of intimidation. In conversation with other parents, this same thread of opinion exists and our children no longer look forward to attending school. When we ve asked our kids What teacher has been a great influence on your life? Sadly, none of them are from Charter Oak High School. What a missed opportunity at such a critical phase of a teenagers life

This high school is among the best in the state.All my children have gone here and I have found that they care about the kids and the teachers do the best with what tools they are given.Believe me with all the cut backs that have happened they do a great job!!!For all you parents out there if you really want your kids to accellerate academically then get involved with them.When you stat involved with your kids it shows them you care and they are a better person for it.Before my daughter stsrted in this district she was at least a D - C student and by the time she got into high school she brought her grades up to C+ - B.In her 2nd year at Charter Oak high she was on the honor roll until she graduated.Now she is an LVN and about to become an RN!! So I give a huge thumbs up to Charter Oak high and all the teachers!!!!Rember parents you need to get involved and stay involved with your kids if you want them to succeed.

Not a very good school if you are looking for academics. The administration is so so and the teachers are O.K. If you are looking for good schools now I would suggest Glendora H.S. or San Dimas High School. Damian is an excellent high school but it is a private school so you have to pay to go.

I'm about to graduate UC Irvine, and I have to thank COHS for preparing me for college, particularly the IB Program. The school does have its flaws. I felt that the CP classes didn't do much to help students, and not the teachers were great. Also moticed when i went there that the administration sometimes prioritized IB kids over non-IB kids. However, i believe that students and parents can demand change if they feel they need it. Overall it's a great school that offers much opportunity for student growth and if parents feel unhappy with their child's education, they should take it upon themselves to demand change at the district level.

Charter Oak High School is an excellent academic school. As a military brat I had been to a few to be able to compare. It was the school that had the most dedicated teachers I had seen.

My student is currently attending Charter Oak High School as a Junior. I feel she has received good advice and assistance from her counselor and only one other teacher this year which is a IB teacher. This IB teacher is rigorous in her home work assignments but at the same time praises all the students equally!

Isn't your student's success based on what they put into it and how much you are on top of them? I think Charter Oak has gone beyond my expectations of a public high school, considering my child was in private school all her life. I find her teachers to be extremely nurturing, and if there are any issues, I am free to communicate with the teachers via email or telephone. They are very responsive.

I went to CO in 2008 The campus population is polarized by race. It's no surprise the yearbook came out the way it did. Academics are no different than any other school although the offerings are very thin. Technology is almost non-existent. The staff doesn't seem to have a clue, they need to hire someone with the education and knowledge to push this school into the 21st century. The kids have more technology on them than the classrooms. I would rate COHS a C-

This school is pretty much like any other High School. Students get the education they deserve and have the opportunity to take advanced classes if they have the ability. It is the ones who have academic issues that seem to have a problem with any school. High School is what you make of it. As a former student, I had a good time and feel that I was given a good education. I have only 1 regret, not winning CIF in Football. Big deal !!!

This school has turned out to be a joke. Poor class offerings and morale. Teacher's should care more about the students than their paychecks. They always point to the few students that would have made it in any District, the Parents of these students should get most of the credit.

I went to CO for all four years of high school and graduated with an IB-diploma. People complaining about academic rigor have obviously not taken any of these courses, some of which are 2-year classes put into a single year. IB not only prepared me well for the University setting but gave me a full year of credit saving me thousands. Additionally the counselors are very helpful and helped me get a full ride to my university. As for sports I swam and had a great time, nothing bad to say about it. Most teachers I had were excellent but one of them, who happened to have recently gotten in trouble over the yearbook, was too political in the class room. It was English, but she continually pushed her own views on religion/politics and graded based on favoritism. I earned a 6 on the IB exam, she gave me a B.

i like this school. some teachers are alright but mainly the students. i LOVE the athletic sports. they really whip my school into shape.

This school is okay - it's a typical American high school - too much focus on social events, and not enough academic rigor. This school like many others are struggling with students and parents that are really not interested in participating in the education process. There certainly are teachers that should retire because they are no longer excited about teaching - and I'm sure its due to a multitude of issues ...politics, parents, and the lack of student involvment. Teachers deserve better pay, however I'm a believer in pay for performance, therefore if teachers cannot engage the students - they should not be compensated for status quo and/or poor performance. For those teachers that inspire students to preform academically and in practical applicaiton which is to apply basic learned principals those teacher deserve not only the merit increase but annualized bonuses. Academic Acheivement + Pratical Application = Increase Salary.

This is a very hostile environment to teach in. The former administrators (which now are leading at the district level) are incompetent leaders. They don't know how to budget, they nurture negative attitudes, and reprimand teachers for requiring basic skills in assignments (ie. writing in complete sentences). As a parent mentioned earlier, they don't even budget for photo copies. There is a high turn over rate of teachers for a reason. As a parent, and a teacher, I would not send my child here.

I absolutely love Charter Oak. It doesn't only offer one thing like sports or academics, but also includes personality and school spirit something that will never die here.

My daughter attended 2007 school year and I didn't feel that the teachers, nor the counselers help encourage any of the students to excel. I think that Charter Oak School District WAS once a great district and now no longer.

I go to Charter Oak High School, and even though it does not have the greatest education opportunities, it does offer the International Baccalaureate program, and those that choose to participate in it get a top notch education. Also, Charter Oak offers great extracurricular activities with its award winning drama program, choir program, and band.

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.
