    I graduated at class of 2012 so as the first class of all four years I found that choosing this school is one of the best decisions I've made. The teachers really do care about you excelling and learning all you can. I recommend other students to take the AP courses because while challenging the teachers prepare you quite well and create an atmosphere excellent for learning. The facilities are clean and organized. The staff members are friendly and helpful. An honorable mention must go to the Visual and Performing Arts department for they teach their students to behave professionally and do their best not just in their specialties but in the other aspects of their life as well. All in all I had a wonderful experience at COHS and I believe their programs performances academics sports etc can only get better and better.

    This is an incredible school! The teachers are great and really care about their students. The atmosphere is not intimidating and has an overall pleasant feel whenever I come visit. So much resource is available to the students so there is no excuse for mediocre performance. Sports teams are open to all perhaps because of the small population but it affords the students to find at least one sport they enjoy. Being a fairly new school stats and scores are not exactly exemplary as of now but I have every confidence that as the school gets a foothold on these it's rating will be even more impressive. Even thought my family doesn't live in the area I am happy to drive the 8 miles to get my kids to this school and back. It's a sacrifice I'm willing to make because I believe in the potential of this school.

    I love this school a lot because the teachers are great and the school has promoted a healthy environment where the students don't feel down and there are not many bullies or gangs or drugs or smoking. Sports and extra curricular activities are promoted. I am happy to say this is a great school and it is a lot of fun.

    I love Cosumnes Oaks High School because of their philosophy about students. They are happy to take students who have 'other intelligences.' They are not simply interested in those who are great at say math and Science - but understand that all students have gifts. Art music acting sports all count and doing what you are good at in school will give you confidence to work harder on subjects that challenge you. I like the idea that all 'intelligences' are valued at our school and as I believe should be in our world. Para-Educator (pink-slipped 3/10)

I am a sophmore serving at cosumnes oaks high school and my grades and motivation to go to college has dramatically increased since my previous history of different schools. this one is like no other and is very diverse with different people. A lot of my piers seem to be very friendly and caring.

    Having just moved to the area I feel that this school excels in all areas. We are especially pleased with their sports program footlball to be more specific. My child has been made to feel welcome and has not regrets moving to this new school.
