West Orange Public Schools Reviews
My experience with West Orange Public Schools is fantastic! The schools are extremely diverse, and provide me with a chance to get to know everyone through the various events they hold.
Throughout the 4 years of attending West Orange High school, currently, in my 4 years, I would like to say that overall it has given me many opportunities to seek a better education. For example, the school has given students the opportunity to receive college credits by taking an after-school course from Essex County this class lasted a whole semester. Another opportunity this offers is The collegiate Institute also known as AVID to help and prepare the student for college. While being in this class I learned to be more organized by taking Cornell notes and helping the students with the whole college process. Although the rules of this school have been more strict in terms of clothing, having electronic devices during class, or having headphones while going to the next class, or making everyone in the building to where their ideas have been a positive impact in the school community.
West Orange is extremely diverse with students from very nationality, political view, sexuality, and religion, thus, providing me with valuable information in being a doctor. Being a student at West Orange Schools has allowed me to communicate with others fairly and ignore any bias that I have accumulated over the years. Additionally, the amazing staff has guided me in my journey as a prospective doctor. Each of my teachers taught me how to refrain from attempting to be perfect, be more receptive to my mistakes, and use every lesson to further myself. My guidance counselor provided me with wonderful resources for research as a high school student and assisting in designing my course schedule to bring me one step closer to my goal. In all, West Orange Schools has given me endless resources to be the person I am today and will be in the future.
