    I loved this school I just recently got all my credits and am about to walk the stage on tuesday. I couldn't have done it on time without this school. I didn't even have the credits to go to Vintage High or Napa they didn't want me. Valley Oak changes lives for the better. Wish I could give it six stars.

    I hated school and during my first two years of highschool i already got myself kicked out of three different schools. Valley Oak was my last chance and it really did save me! The teachers there are so helpful and really do care unlike others in the napa valley that have 2000 kids to take care of. I recommend this school to any kid that has problems learning does the work in class but hates homework or anything else.

    5+ Stars. My daughter graduated from Valley Oak high school last June and received two scholarships. She was a student there in 11th & 12th grade coming from Vintage high school where she was an 'F' student & lost in the crowd. She rapidly improved to an 'A' student with the small class sizes and individual attention she received from the incredable teachers/staff at Valley Oak. This has been the most positive academic experience she has had in her school career. I am thankful that a negative situation had such a positive final outcome. This school is awsome in helping students acheive their potential (if they work at it too.)

    This school completely changed my child's life and focused on my daughter's talents to build on. The teachers are amazing and really dedicate one-on-one time with the students which is what they need. Thank You Valley Oak!

    My son has been attending this school and he loves it. He has ADD and there has been such a remarkable attitude with the teachers here. They are here because they want to and it shows in how they treat the kids and the kids there can see this. The core is the same as any high school but not all kids can do the big schools where they are left to fall through the cracks because there are too many students to care. Not here at Valley Oak. I am proud to say that my son was one of the first students of the new Valley Oak and will graduate from here with his head held high and his belief in himself to succed strong. Thank you to all the staff of Valley Oak.
