My child is a freshman at Oakmont, and they some excellent programs for the students and the parents all take a very active part in the school s activities. I do however dislike the YO-YO student schedule that is so inconsistant, some days are out early, sometimes they aren t, school hours change randomly and most of the time we parents are not notified so other arrangements can be made, and BTW the website isn t updated. (a district issue i'm sure) Frustrating as all heck to say the least. The administration office staff needs a significant attitude adjustment (seriously)! A note to them, when it's stated Attitude Is Everything it s not meant as rude, condescending and nasty attitude is everything, just sayin'. Other than those issues the school it's self is fantastic so far and I would recommend.

I will be starting my freshman year here at OHS, and yesterday we Frosh attended Blue Crew Orientation. I already made at least 3 or 4 new friends and I am pleased with my schedule. The staff and admin seem great so far, very welcoming. I am excited to start school in 4 days. :)

There is literally nothing awful about Oakmont High School. From the teachers, to the administration, even the campus, the school I have attended for the last 4 years has been nothing but excellent for me. Honestly, when I came on here to see that my school got 4/5 stars, I was shocked that it didn't receive 5. However, after looking at the comments I found out quickly. The only bad reviews were left with those that did not apply themselves at this school (as seen in any high school) and those that honestly do not deserve an opinion at rating this school. Seriously, someone on here gave this school one star because of someone else's comment which had "grammar mistakes." How pathetic is that. If people are complaining about crime at Oakmont, then they live under a bubble. Situated in Roseville, Oakmont has to be in one of the all around safest neighborhoods in the country. It's not because the neighborhood is filled with rich homes, rather, the people here are like that. Oakmont High School has done nothing but prepare me for my future and is entitled to every single one of my 5 stars.

Most of the Oakmont teachers we had are good teachers and they seem to care about the kids (our favorites who were exceptional were Mr. Plank, Ms. John and Mr. Trout) but the administation is horrible. They are very rude to both the the parents and kids. The school also has a lot of crime on campus and many fights. Not the place I want my kids to attend.

Oakmont is an amazing high school to attend. The teachers treat you like as an equal and not like your superior. Academically, the teachers are always there to help students (or Parents) with any questions they have about homework, classwork, after school tutoring, you name it they'll help you. The Culinary Program there is also an amazing program to enter if you have any passion for a carrer in Culinary

Oakmont is very down to earth and the teachers are usually very helpful if any student needs help. One problem with this school, however, is it`s organization when it comes to class schedules. I am a junior and I have had a problem with my schedule all three years with three different counselors. Last year, I was a week behind in one of my classes when school started because they switched one of my classes on the first day of school without telling me about it. The counselors also cannot be talked to about schedule changes until a week after school starts!! Other than that, the working environment at Oakmont is great! I would recommend this school to anyone I know ( :

I am proud to be an Oakmont parent. I have one that graduated last year and another that is soon to be a sophomore. I love the teachers so far. I have not seen any problems with drugs or drinking (thank GOD) but i have to make sure to nudge my child in the right direction.

After reading the student reviews, I could see this school and the public school are not doing their job. Poor spelling and grammar from students rating Oakmont a great school should tell us a lot.

Overall, oakmont is a good school ACADEMICALLY. i have straight A's and B's, but there's a HUGE bullying problem here. We've had to have bullying rallies/assemblies, which don't seem to work. I'm switching to a different highschool in a couple weeks because of this problem :/ not a good place to be if you don't like drama. but academically, Oakmont is amazing.

As a Senior who has attended all four years here at Oakmont, I would say my experience has been good. A majority of the teachers are friendly, and understanding of high school problems. I felt Ive had a chance to really connect with teachers and other faculty. Although I must say, the office Admin has done a good job of making themselves scarce on campus(healy and werlin are exceptions to this). The Media Productions course has been a great hands on learning experience, and is by far the best program I have become actively involved in. Oakmont has treated me well these past four years, and though I am not fond of a large majority of the student population, it is a great school

I have had 3 children attend Oakmont, two have graduated. My oldest child attended a different high school in her freshman through junior years. I am much happier with Oakmont than with the other high school. Teachers overall are great, don't believe that the drug problem is any worse than at other schools and in most cases drugs are less common. My children have been very involved in sports and other school activities and just love it here! The vice principal, Sybil Healy is the greatest!

my child goes to oakmont and the teachers are not so good. they are very disorganized, often mark kids absent when they are in class. They mostly just send home lots of homework and dont do much teaching! also they seem to have a lot of students with drug problems! this is just an opinion.

We appreciate the fine teachers at this school. The administration though, is far more interested in programs than people. Communication between administration and parents is poor. I am sending my other children to a different high school in this district and things are much better there!

My son attended 9th grade at this school and we absolutely loved it! The administration was wonderful. They treated the students like real human beings. I wish the school he transferred to was like Oakmont!

This is an academic review and I'm a parent. Though this school has IB and AP, the rigor hasn't been thoroughly established in these programs. Math CST (Calif std testing) scores are starkly below average as evidenced by the fact that > 50% of the students tested in the last two years aren't at a proficient level! My son is in AP Calc now and except for this year, every other math class he's had he's used to finish homework for other classes! The lack of practice and time dedicated to math is to me, a significant reason for low scores. The math teachers are almost all coaches and their main interest seems to lie outside of the classroom. The minimal homework in all Honors, IB and AP classes indicates he's prepared only for two more years of high school at Sierra unless he prepares on his own.

Oakmont is a great school. i am a junior and have attended here all 3 years and will graduate from here. Im also in the health academy and enjoy theenvironment in my classes associated with the academy. Mr. Muller is an awesome person and so is Mrs. Sirovy. If you are looking into Oakmont for your children- I say it's worth it, whatever 'it' may be. The Health Academy is great, along with our new I.B. Program. Overall environment is ok, with the average high school settings at lunch and after school. Teachers are very friendly and are willing to help whenever it's needed. Overall an AWESOME school

The teachers my kids have are exceptional. Overall, OHS is a very good school. But, something needs to be done to tighten up the discipline. Athletics (wrestling, swimming, water polo, volleyball, soccer) my kids are involved in have great coaches. Great performing arts and art teachers, too.

This is a good school. My teenager has connected with most of her instructors. She is excited about 'most' of her classes which I give credit to the teachers for making learning interesting enough to hold the kids attention. They also responded quickly to any of my questions. The bus issue can be challenging: activity bus does not run often enough after school.

Oakmont has good teachers, but their not great. Many are disorganized and don't know how to teach at an average pace. The students are cruel, but the same is at most high schools. Sports activities are demanding. Art programs are good.
