I really appreciate all the teachers and staff at the school. The staff members are very friendly and the teachers are so nice! They try their best to help students as much as the can. I really love the offered AP classes and especially career courses! There’s a huge assortment of AP courses for college credit as well as classes that will help us in our future careers and majors. I am satisfied with the creation of new sports every year and I hope that the schools will continue to prosper.

Since being at the school for nearly 2 years, the school has provided me with many great experiences and memories. There are a variety of clubs and classes which allows students to really explore themselves and provides them with the resources to experiment and see what they want to focus on in their years to come.
However one disadvantage is that the school isn't that strict. I was able to understand how some teachers thought, they were being paid to be there so they didn't care much about what students did. This, in turn, gives the impression on students that they can mess around, until they graduate and then not know what to do at that point. One thing I would change is the atmosphere in the school, and the student's attitudes towards learning. Some students do not care about their education, and it is the teacher's obligation to make them realize how important this education is, and how others would do anything for this opportunity.
Orange Unified School District is full of great schools with amazing programs that students cannot find anywhere else. The faculty is kind and helpful, and the teachers are more than qualified. Many students have experiences with teachers reaching out to them to make sure they are getting the help they need or that they are being challenged enough. The students make the campuses a fun, spirited environment that we can look forward to coming back to every day. We also have amazing sports programs with encouraging coaches that train their athletes from the bottom up. Our arts teachers give their students opportunities they could not find elsewhere.
