Pretty Good excepts needs to be more challenging. Needs get that California Distinguished School to have a higher rating. Also probably needs that IB program, so don't send your kids if you want them to be challenged. Only good if you want them to have a good class rank and want colleges to see your kid or child stand out. Half of the kids in the classes don't study and too many class distractions, but overall nice. Too many students don't do well.

I believe that the teachers at Oroville High School are exceptional and go above and beyond to make sure their students succede. Furthermore, the majority of the students are respectful and care about their education and future. However, the students who do not cooperate with their teachers make it difficult for the students who are trying hard to get everything they deserve from their education. Overall, I really love this school.

Upon transferring to OHS... the school allowed my child to continue with a physiology class not offered at OHS. It was extra work for the generous staff who supervised and graded her progress. Plenty of AP classes with great teachers are offered. Gang activity is a real detractor.

About these ratings

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.

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 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.
