I would not recommend this school to anyone. I think the review submitted by a teacher says it all. Please find other avenues to have your child be provided an education. They would not even provide homework for my child because no one else will do their homework. This is what the teacher told me. The students themselves are not provided a safe environment.
. I have mixed reviews about this school. Most of the students are on Government funding known as an AB2726- I think it costs the state approx 5k or more a month. With that much funding one would think the quality of care would be much higher. The CEO takes her position seriously but this does not filter down. In fact, some of the Dorm leaders are as immature as the students including their dress- you cannot tell who is the faculty and who is the student. As a parent, if you are not on top of your child's situation and involved your child can get seriously lost in the program.
My grandson has been there a month and we can see great changes in his attitude. He enjoys the school very much. I just attended their "Honors Day" ceremony and the kids really seem to appreciate each other and the staff
My son went to Oakgrove for 3 years. All I can say is the school, directors, instructors, aids, drivers and coaches are a BLESSING! My son is on the road to success and I am proud of him.
DO NOT TRUST WITH YOUR CHILDREN! The teachers and aids in this school have full control over the students with apparently no accountability for what they can do to your children. Our son went to school depressed and when he was questioned as far as why and would not answer was threatened with disciplinary action and when he tried walking away was tackled by 1 teacher and 2 teacher aids, arms twisted, thumbs twisted to the point they were almost broken, clothes torn and then they held him face down in the asphalt and their knees in his back blocking his lungs so he could not breathe. Before that they slapped his novel that he was writing for the last 5 years and kept it with his glasses which still haven't been returned. They called the police; he was handcuffed and taken to a mental institute.
Everyone at Oak Grove cares about the children. The educational program is excellent.
My child has special needs and Oak Grove is doing a great job working with him.
Great school. Great program. The dorm Staff are very skilled at working with special children
Oak Grove is an excellent facility and provided my child with the help she needed
Oak Grove provided a strong program and gave my son the resources and effort he needed to turn his life around
I have been very impressed with oak grove's program. My son Is improving more and more. He has only been there 2 months but I have seen great improvement in his behavior
My daughter is at Oak Grove Now. She was 1/2 year behind in her graduation credits before entering Oak Grove at the beginning of the school year. Their credit recovery program is wonderful as my daughter is now graduating this month.
My 15 year daughter is at Oak Grove now and I am very dissapointed in the schools performence. IAnd no one is on top of things there, lots of confussion. I would not recommend this school to anyone.
The resendential program is wary. Listen to your child, even though after everything, it seems difficult. Visit, and trust you inner voice. Communication between therpist and family is weak. Listen and trust yourself. Christy
