    I would not recommend this school to anyone. I think the review submitted by a teacher says it all. Please find other avenues to have your child be provided an education. They would not even provide homework for my child because no one else will do their homework. This is what the teacher told me. The students themselves are not provided a safe environment.

    . I have mixed reviews about this school. Most of the students are on Government funding known as an AB2726- I think it costs the state approx 5k or more a month. With that much funding one would think the quality of care would be much higher. The CEO takes her position seriously but this does not filter down. In fact some of the Dorm leaders are as immature as the students including their dress- you cannot tell who is the faculty and who is the student. As a parent if you are not on top of your child's situation and involved your child can get seriously lost in the program.

    My grandson has been there a month and we can see great changes in his attitude. He enjoys the school very much. I just attended their "Honors Day" ceremony and the kids really seem to appreciate each other and the staff

    My son went to Oakgrove for 3 years. All I can say is the school directors instructors aids drivers and coaches are a BLESSING! My son is on the road to success and I am proud of him.

    DO NOT TRUST WITH YOUR CHILDREN! The teachers and aids in this school have full control over the students with apparently no accountability for what they can do to your children. Our son went to school depressed and when he was questioned as far as why and would not answer was threatened with disciplinary action and when he tried walking away was tackled by 1 teacher and 2 teacher aids arms twisted thumbs twisted to the point they were almost broken clothes torn and then they held him face down in the asphalt and their knees in his back blocking his lungs so he could not breathe. Before that they slapped his novel that he was writing for the last 5 years and kept it with his glasses which still haven't been returned. They called the police; he was handcuffed and taken to a mental institute.

    My daughter is at Oak Grove Now. She was 1/2 year behind in her graduation credits before entering Oak Grove at the beginning of the school year. Their credit recovery program is wonderful as my daughter is now graduating this month.

    The resendential program is wary. Listen to your child even though after everything it seems difficult. Visit and trust you inner voice. Communication between therpist and family is weak. Listen and trust yourself. Christy
