Alternative schools include schools for potential dropouts, residential treatment centers for substance abuse, schools for chronic truants, and schools for students with behavioral problems.

Valley Oak High School Reviews
Great school. This was just the right step for my youngest. She has done very well here and enjoys going to on a daily basis. She is learning, comes home and talks about her day at school.
She is a lot happier now in Valley Oak and at home.
She is graduating this June!!!!!!
