Oroville High has a relatively diverse student population, with a racial makeup that is more diverse compared to nearby schools like Las Plumas High and Prospect High (Continuation). However, the school's academic performance, as measured by standardized test scores, is generally lower than the state average and the nearby schools. For example, only 51.41% of Oroville High students were proficient or better in English Language Arts/Literacy, compared to the state average of 55.41%. In Mathematics, only 16.95% of Oroville High students were proficient or better, compared to the state average of 27.36%. Additionally, Oroville High has seen a decline in its four-year graduation rate, from 96.0% in 2019-2020 to 89.6% in 2022-2023, and an increase in its dropout rate from 3.0% in 2018-2019 to 8.1% in 2022-2023.

Oroville High also faces challenges with student engagement and attendance, with a high chronic absenteeism rate of 34.6% in the 2022-2023 school year, significantly higher than the state average and the nearby schools. Additionally, the school has a high percentage of students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds, with 86.22% of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch in the 2022-2023 school year, higher than the nearby schools. These factors suggest that Oroville High may need targeted interventions and support to improve student learning outcomes and address the unique challenges faced by its diverse student population.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
