Brea-Olinda High School Reviews
This school has its good and bad parts. Good things include a multitude of electives to choose from with enables you to find what career path you’d like to take in the future. The food is pretty good, especially the breakfast sandwiches. Sports and performing arts programs are some of the top teams/ensembles in the state which is pretty cool. Some of the teachers are amazing but others not so much. Which leads into the bad things about this school. There are many teachers who aren’t the best at teaching for example: regular class teachers pace the classes as if they are AP causing students to struggle. Many of the teachers unfairly score tests ot test on things they’ve never taught. And among that they are rude to kids as if they are highschoolers too. Besides the teachers, the students here can be very immature which makes going to school there annoying. Thankyou for listening to my ted talk.
Brea Olinda there is a mix of good and bad. The programs provided are good but the teachers are hot and cold. You could end up with a wonderful teacher who is helpful and cares about their students but then at times, teachers can be unprofessional, rude, and biased. There have been multiple times that teachers have essentially failed as a teacher, not teaching, cares more about making friends with students, then makes the tests very hard.
I would like to see Brea HS become more safe and I would love to see people get along better! Some of the teachers at Brea are really awful. For example, there is an AP teacher on campus that hands out worksheets and refuses to go thoroughly through the notes- which is uncanny.
