Orange Glen High School is one of the less known schools in town. We are a school of diversity, and with less money than the other schools in the district, however this does not change the students on campus, if anything, it makes them work harder. We are known for our outstanding culinary classes and our ABC programs. Because Orange Glen High School is less fortunate than other schools, it encourages others to help out and make our campus better. The ASB program over the past couple years has grown significantly, from 1 class with 25 students to 2 classes with 84 students. OG is the place to be!

Orange Glen High School is a wonderful school! There might be rumors saying otherwise but from my experience all I could say is this school is like a second home. Not only is the campus nice, the teachers, the security and staff are all lovely people that only care about their students hopes, dreams and future! The teachers I had were always supportive and with them I became confident, gained leadership skills and opportunities to continue on to higher education. I never saw bullying or discrimination and as I remember students were always good towards each other. The only thing I would of liked this school to improve on is the cafeteria food and a more variety of visual arts classes offered to students.
Orange Glen High School is an all-inclusive campus. It may not be ethnically diverse, but anyone can feel welcomed on campus. Your interests can range from being a fan of Korean pop groups to wanting to learn traditional dances from Mexico and you will be guaranteed to find others who share those same interests, not to mention the teachers who will be glad to support them too. I truly appreciated knowing that I was never alone on campus since friends could be made almost virtually anywhere. Although the overall welcoming vibe that makes Orange Glen enjoyable for students, another feature that sets it apart from other high schools is the inclusion of the special education students on campus. The students can be seen delivering papers to classrooms or participating in dance classes and are always respected by their peers. Their involvement on campus is something not always seen in other schools and it makes me glad that Orange Glen is one of the few that cares and does not discriminate.
