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.

My experience with Orange County was a great one!

As far as academics go, I believe that they give students a great opportunity to get ahead, like AP classes or Dual Enrollment. Students have many opportunities, they just need to learn more about them and seize them.

I've had great experiences with the teachers as well. I've learned much from all my teachers. Not only academic lessons, but life lessons as well. The teachers always seek which ways to interact better with students and how to teach them the material. Administration is like this as well. Orange County's Administration cares much for the future of their students. If you ever needed any help or advice, they were there to provide it.

Parent involvement is something that I think Orange County might need to a bit more on. I know that parents have their jobs and such, but I think that parents should involve their self more in the school life of their children.
A great school experience and growing infrastructure testifies to many of OCPS's successes and failings. On one hand, this school district provides many students with access to new career opportunities and technology that enhances learning and provides tools for college preparation; however, on the other there is not enough lenience and assistance on the behalf of OCPS towards schools, especially regarding teachers and students with the new technology provided. The district has restricted access to categorized websites, hence leading to problems with students and teachers accessing educational resources and more. Additionally, teachers in certain schools are prevented from utilizing printers in their classrooms, making it necessary to rely on school printers to print resources for classrooms. Other then these few mishaps, OCPS is growing to become a leader in education in the state of Florida!
