Orange Unified is a great district! I've been attending from kindergarten and am now a Junior in high school. All the teachers I've had showed an interest- a passion, in what they were doing. I have bonded with many people, made friends. The guidance that those people have given me is truly wonderful, and the support is irreplaceably cherished.
I believe that the Orange Unified School District has done it's best to provide several resources to its students. By either providing Ipads, Chromebooks, and other technology to ensure students have access to online learning. NOt only that but the mass request to update schools has been taken into notice to be improved and refurbished for a better school environment. However, they have in fact had several track issues at Villa Park Highschool which has effected their track team tremendously. Yet, despite the environment and area that the Orange Unified School district is at, they strive to acquire many opportunities for their students.
