Hace un año nos mudamos para acá en Orange County ! Mi hijo venía desde Orlando en donde los chicos asisten a high school en pijamas! Se sentía frustrado y no tenía ningún apoyo de los profesores la actitud pasiva del sistema lo estaba llevando a tener malas notas y el siempre ha sido un chico de A y B ! El está en el programa de IB ! Y lo único que sentía de diferente era que tenia que hacer más tareas! El llego con matemáticas en C y la recomendación de la profesora de Orlando que le bajarán el nivel ! Apenas llegamos a la escuela Newport Harbor High School ! Su profesor Mr. Navarro. Comenzó a apoyarlo el estuvo todo eso año con A y sobresaliente en sus clases y conducta ! Estoy súper feliz de haber podido encontrar una escuela que motivara a mi hijo a ser mejor persona y mejor estudiante

OUSD was honestly an average school experience. However, there were many flaws. In my family, both of my brothers have Aspergers which makes normal schooling more difficult for them. Orange Unified School District was absolutely no help to my family in that type of situation. We continue to go through IEP negotiations that are stressful to not only my brothers, but my parents as well. As for my education, it has been okay, nothing special. Many of my teachers sit on their phones and don't even teach the class. It is very frustrating. Though, I have had a few exceptional teachers. So, I like to think that everything when it's all added up balences out. My experience so far has been average.
I enjoy the schools of the Orange Unified School District as I have attended Olive Elementary and am currently attending Villa Park High School. The atmosphere of all Orange United School District schools are welcoming and inviting. The staff is helpful, the teachers are amazing, and the student body is very diverse. I would not change much about Orange Unified School District schools except for the bathrooms and the cafeteria food. However, Villa Park High School is being remodeled, so it will surely improve. Overall, I really do like Orange Unified School District.
