Orion Community Unit School District No. 223 Reviews
Orion schools are part of a tight-knit community, which transitions to the school atmosphere, too. The teachers really care bout your success and are very kind. There are quite a few well-qualified teachers who enhance student's learning. However, Orion also has many under-qualified teachers. Another downside that affected me was that, since Orion is so small, they are not able to offer a large array of classes or diversity in its students. The lack of class options didn't set me up well for applying to college and scholarships because it looked like I didn't take specialized classes; when in reality, they didn't offer them. Overall, Orion school district is a great place to grow up in, with only a few setbacks.
What I like about the school is how helpful the teachers are with your studies and also challenge you to do better. They also all know your name and can become friends with many of them. Our sports teams have done pretty great the past few years and we can say were one of the top schools in the area. We also have some very high test scores that put us above everyone else. They teach greatness here at Orion and there has been a lot of that. The only thing Id like to see changed is maybe an update to the desks and computer labs. We have new laptops for everyone and some new desks. Overall were a very good school.
Academically, good school, though people won't admit it. The grading scale is harder which is a little unfair, but it pushes kids to do better. Too focused on football and basketball, little attention to other sports or fine arts.
