Brea-Olinda High School Reviews
Brea Olinda offers a wide variety of AP and Honors classes to help students get ahead. Some classes articulate with community college courses, students 16+ get to leave campus for ROP classes. The Career Technical Education classes are a great resource for all. School spirit is demonstrated with frequent rallies, dress up days, and activities. As a student, the one thing I would like to change is closed-campus lunch. They block the gates and don't let students walk to restaurants or let their parents drop off food for them. They also require 2 years of physical education credit to graduate, whereas the A-G requirements don't. I think there should only be one year needed, and then sports could be counted as elective credits. The final thing is that you can't take any AP classes freshman year. Overall, Brea is a great place to attend high school. They have academically challenging classes & great performing arts programs. Things I want to change are a couple setbacks to be aware of.
The administration team could be improved, as a lack of truly wanting help the students is missing. However, the teachers and counselors, really care and put effort towards their students. They get thorough enjoyment in seeing the students improve and striving to do their best. The open campus is by far the element that sets Brea Olinda High School apart from all other high schools. The (partly) new, large, open campus eludes a sense of freedom and relaxation.
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.
