This school is pretty good.I feel there needs to be more restrooms,they should have restrooms in the halls but they don't so it takes 10 minutes to go to the restroom and get back to class.2 hours classes are terrible I get so bored after the first 30 minutes.They need more benches,more shade,and more drinks on the food carts.There is always technical difficulties with computers in class.We sometimes can't do labs in science because the computer are down.Mission Oak is a very welcoming school though.The teachers are nice and the people are great.Everyone gets along fine and there isn't any bullying that I have seen and they haves tons of school spirit.I do wish the teachers took more time to help us with stuff we don't understand because the work isn't always easy especially stuff we have to learn in a day and the teachers should not put so much pressure on us with a bunch of tests.The teachers should always encourage us.not make us feel bad because we didn't meet their standards on the tests.Anyways Mission Oak is a pretty good school and very welcoming.I hope that the school will get bigger and better but for now I am really enjoying being a freshman at Mission Oak High School.!!

The schools learning education reflecting the students outcome of their credentials that they learn, in my opinion, is very good. Mission Oak is one of the better schools out of the three leading tulare schools: Tulare Western and Tulare Union. Though the school is still very new and needs a lot of work, its a great place for students to better their education and be prepared for college.

Mission Oak is a great school! All of the staff that works in the administration building does get very invloved in school activites. Although I cant say the same about all the teachers. Mission Oak is developing and things are going great so far. It doesn't have as much spirit as Tulare Union, but I'm sure it will get there. :)

This is a beautiful school. There has been effective communication between myself and the school. I have not had any problems with any of the departments. It is nice to see the high school staff highly involved in school events. I feel very welcomed when I visit the campus. Thank you

This is a beautiful school but unfortunately not everything is wonderful. The math department needs a complete overhaul to start with. Yes with any new school there are going to be problems but so far seems as through the problems keep accumulating with none getting resolved. My student now hates school and wishes she never had to leave Tulare Union. Hopefully it will get better cause it can't get any worse.

Its amazing how beautiful the school is but attending school there as my daughter puts it is like being in jail. There have lunch lines that are forever. There is no shade. No benches or places to sit. No water faucets except in halls which there not allowed in at lunch. Not enough restrooms. Math teachers need some guidance. Overall a very depressing place to have to go to school. Wish my daughter never had to leave Tulare Union

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.
