Lake Orion Community Schools Reviews
Lake Orion also has a lot of college opportunities, many classes that are available, you can test to get a college credit. If a student is interested in culinary, cosmetics, or even engineering they can get bussed to a nearby technical campus called O-tech. These opportunities are amazing and since it gives a college credit, it helps students save money when they have to go off to college.
To anyone looking for a good school for their children, as a student of LOHS, I would recommend becoming a member of the amazing Lake Orion community.
We were absolutely not disappointed. I am so happy to say 6 years later, we are infinitely glad we chose LO—we now have a kid going into middle school, one going into 3rd grade, and a 3 yr old in the wings who can’t wait to be an official “dragon.”
I can’t say enough about how positive our relationship with LOCS has been. Everyone from the administration to the janitorial staff have provided a safe, caring, and comfortable learning environment. Our 2 oldest have thrived even with the challenges presented by the pandemic.
