- lazy and irresponsible teacher / administratives - teachers/admin do not care - students are disrespectful. bullied others. - does not prepare students for college - students in leadership is based on 'popularity' and even people in leadership roles (for the school) bullies other students - major student population cheat. does not care about learning the materials.

I am an ex-student. I went here during my Junior year in high school and I will never ever go back to that school or if I ever have children, send them there. For one, the students are HORRIBLE and the administrators never really do anything. The teachers don't really care if you come to class or not only a certain handful actually care about their students, we can easily go on and off campus to smoke or do whatever and the school is constantly on "lock-down" glad I left when I had the chance.

Oakland High School inhibits a positive environment for a diverse array of students. Students are respectful of each other no matter ethnic background, or personal beliefs. The school facilitates many different clubs, sports and support that is essential for such young adults at a critical time in their lives. The school is a result of the supportive community near and around Oakland High School.

If you've ever driven by Oakland High, you can tell right off the bat that it's a terrible school. All the houses are graffitied on and all the students look like they've been in jail before. As I was driving by, I noticed a mural at the front saying "Beautiful Struggle". The students most likely painted that mural, and they can't even have good grammar? And the students..... Well, they look like crazy teenagers who don't care about education. I saw a guy with a whole bunch of tattoos dancing with his shirt off and a whole bunch of people cheering around him, a guy with an orange mohawk smoking and drinking, a group of people with saggy pants walking to the corner store, and a girl with a slashed top and tons of piercings kissing a boy passionately. The teenagers are really bad influences. Never in a million years will I go there again.

I am a current student at Oakland High school, and im am about to be a senior there. Oakland High is what you make it. You can make Oakland High bad by not going to class and not caring about your education and just try to blame it on the name "Oakland" on the other hand I find it hard and challenging. It is your responsiblity to make sure that you recieve the courses you need and it is your job to makie sure you are recieving the education you need. because I know the teachers there are not great but if you become invoilved in the school and get to know people and join academies like VAMMP, AVID, and ESA where all 3 will make sure you get what you need to be successful in life but if you just say right of the bat that Oakland high isnt a good school your wrong you just didnt try hard enough!!!!!

my son went to Oakland High and the education was horrible. We transferred him to Skyline High and the academics was much more challenging. I would not recommend Oakland High.

Great art program. Some good academics. Great SH program. Special ed, Learning Disabled, ADHD program inconsistent with minimal accountability. IEP's not followed thoroughly, nor monitored adequately. Too few people making important decisions subjectively.

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.
