Casa Roble Fundamental High School is a public high school located in Orangevale, California. It is a part of the San Juan Unified School District with a student body of approximately 1250 students.[2]

Academic Curriculum

Casa Roble uses the 4x4 block schedule in which students have four, 90 minutes classes per term. This allows for one more class per school year versus the normal seven class, full year schedule. To graduate a student must pass the Senior Project and possess a grand total of 280 credits.

Under the "Refuse to Fail" program, implemented in 2008 by principal Christopher Klyse, students with failing grades in classes are required to turn in all work and receive mandatory tutoring until their grades are passing. This was implemented in an effort to improve grades and decrease drop out rates. As of 2011, Refuse to Fail is no longer in use.

Casa Roble offers elective opportunities. The school's yearbook (Rampages) is a predominantly student run program, they received 2006 H. L. Hall Adviser of the Year.[3] The book is written, designed and photographed exclusively by the student staff, past yearbooks produced by the program have been nationally recognized by both the National Scholastic Press Association and Columbia Scholastic Press Association with multiple Pacemakers, considered the scholastic equivalent to the Pulitzer Prize, and Gold and Silver Crown awards from Columbia University.[4] Casa Radio/TV (CRCN) has also earned an award itself for its "Gameday" segment which offers a little depth into the Casa Roble Varsity Football team each week of the season. It earned third place in the Best of Show category out of hundreds of other schools.
