Orangefield Independent School District Reviews
Orangefield is a somewhat poor district in terms of finances. While there are good teachers there, many many teachers are not good at all and do not have the child's best interest at heart. They have to take whomever applies because so few will work for the merger wages. This is across all areas- acedemic, athletic, extra curricular and even administrative to some extent. While I realize teacher pay is not the only factor, it is one of the primary factors. Now as far as the school itself, it is a safe, mostly drug free, environment and much better than any other local school district, in the environment category. Overall the school district balances out, I suppose. It could go from average to outstanding. But with the lack of funding that seems extremely unlikely!
This is a small school district with great teachers! The student to teacher ratio is low compared to other schools in the state. Teachers care about the students and make it an great learning environment.
I have had a blast attending Orangefield school for 12 years. I have made many friends with the students and have enjoyed my time being taught in the classrooms by the teachers. Something that needs to be changed is putting more money towards the smaller programs such as band and theater.
