Lake Orion Community Schools Reviews
Experiences have varied according to the school the kids were in. Some were better than others, just as some teachers were others. Many were excellent. The music programs are generally excellent. On the downside, a couple years ago the district redistricted, eliminating a couple schools and schools of choice. The children have had interrupted friendships and in the case of ours, interrupted education including gaps because they were forced to move from a multi-age school with a multi-year combined curriculum that didn't align with the others. On the upside, the music, art and theater opportunities have been broad and deep and well-supported by the community.
The administration pretends that the school is perfect when it’s not. The school can afford VR glasses for the library but not Kleenex and white board markers for the teachers. They changed the cafeteria to make it look nicer but it just looks empty it’s set up better then it was and it’s a good thing they added more lines because they were always really long. The food is still barely edible. They took away the dippin dots which I am very unhappy about. . In the past there has been fights, their was and is still the issue of students bringing vapes to school. There are some many things I would like to change about Lake Orion High School but overall most of the teachers are nice, and I like the new assistant principal Mr.Burden.

Overall, this is a very united and unique education system.
