My daughter, who loves school, attended Oehl from 1st-3rd grade and she hated it. The principal, Mr. Robert Morales will not discipline the students and a ton of them have 30+referrals for disciplinary problems without any action. The behavior was so out of control my child came home upset, complaining that she did not learn anything. Good teachers, TERRIBLE principal. Without the administrative support, the teachers cannot focus on teaching.

My child went to this school from 4th grade till 6th. He was bullied the whole time not just verbally but assualted on more than one occasion. My son is so sweet never been a problem at school and i didnt mention he is a special ed student. Not only did they fail to protect my son but seemed to blame him even though he only fought back once after years of abuse by others. Principal is worthless in helping and makes less of the bulling. So glad we are done there. Great school if you are a bully. Not great if you are the kid being bullied on a daily yes daily basis.

My son just started the dual immersion program this year. I was nervous because he is an English Only student. I had several parents as well as his pre school teacher try to discourage me from putting him in the program. They said it confuses the child to learn the two languages so early. What set me at ease is that the principal's daughter is in the dual immersion program. It is comforting to know that she trusts the program enough to put her own child in. My son has been doing great. He loves learning Spanish and the extra challenge was exactly what he needed. The staff is wonderful at Bonnie Oehl. My son is only in kindergarten but it seems like most of the staff members know him by name (in a good way).

They have great Dual Immersion classes. From kindergarten to 5th grade. They not only learn english perfectly but they also learn spanish with ease.

I've had 4 children attend Oehl over 9 years. There are some great teachers. Too bad there hands are tied by 'standards.' If you have taught your children anything at home,you probably don't want to send them to public school. Too much time is spent trying to catch up on the first five years of life. If you think that schools are your children's primary teachers, by all means, send them. Schools are more interested in attendance, or rather their precious funding, than they are in scholastic achievement; they are more interested in punishmests than positive direction. I do know! For two years straight I helped out in multiple classes an average of 10 to 15 hours per week. (More parents should do that if they want positive reform.)

The teachers and staff at Bonnie Oehl are wonderful! They are supportive, caring, and very helpful. They really go out of their way to make sure the kids there succeed. I was always kept up to date on my child's progress and problems. The only problem I had with the school is the need for a (much) larger multi-purpose, or auditorium room. There are simply too many children and parents in attendance for award ceremonies.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

The test results by subgroup show how the designated group of students is performing in comparison to the general population.

The API reflects year-over-year schools performance based on STAR test score results from spring 2013.

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.
