Orange County Public Schools Reviews

I love orange schools! My 4 children started out in private schools and we moved them to Orange schools at their request. We’ve experienced the elementary, middle, and high school, and it has been wonderful for them. The teachers are inspiring, and there is plenty of opportunity to develop their individual talents. They are excited about assigned projects that are meaningful and give them hands on experiences that elevate their learning to more than what can be accomplished in the classroom. Teachers and administrators at Orange schools are also very involved in school functions. It’s very nice to see them not only during school hours, but performances and sports events. Even the staff at Orange schools are kind and helpful. I feel that they look out for all the children that attend Orange schools. We are very happy with the Orange schools.

To begin with, I love Orange County Public Schools because not only are the teachers willing to help and involved with their students' performances but so are the parents. There is also a lot of resources available to us in the library such as databases, various textbooks, and novels which help develop students reading ability and level of comprehension. The food is not so great and could be better. Although the facilities are not the best, they provide safe learning space and a sensation of belonging. Lastly, Orange County Public Schools is very diverse, which decreases the rate of discrimination.
When I first moved to Orange County Public schools, I wasn’t very pleased because I came from an environment of teachers that had a passion of teaching to a place where it was just a job they didn’t really care about. After my sophomore, I realized if I switched from my honors class to AP I would see an improvement of teachers. I was correct. As I took the more rigorous classes, I had the opportunity to actually learn in a classroom rather than do busy work teachers provided when the didn’t want to teach. Overall, it’s really what type of learning you want to receive. I moved myself up to higher classes to receive a better educational experience which one one of the best decisions in my high school career. My junior and senior year cannot compared to my sophomore year. I am truly blessed to have teachers now that are invested in my educational experience and the properness of my future.
