It's a school where you can really explore yourself by joining different organizations & classes! The teachers are always so eager to help you with any issue you have, and are determined for you to be academically successful. We have a great sports program that allows you to see which sport best fits you! I'm apart of the Student Athletic Training program, FCA, FFA, FCCLA, and Track and Field. There's a great amount of diversity with different people and personalities, so anyone can make friends here! It's a small town, so we're all a family and it's honestly been such an amazing experience being taught here.

There are some good and bad things about this high school. The pros: the kids are mostly good, there are some really appreciated teachers and staff (especially the band directors and the principal), and the classes are improving each year. The cons: the number of students in the school is increasing, while the teachers are decreasing, so there are some huge classes that don't need to be that large, there is also some teachers that are not the greatest that ruin the expectations for everyone else, and most of the clubs in the school do nothing. As a student in this school, I understand that things could be improved drastically if only the budget were larger, but paying teachers to sit there and not teach? That's not a good use of the budget. This high school is about average for everything else; same thing you see in every school, too much effort and money into the athletics program when you could be spending money on other things, such as academics.
Overall, my experience at Orange Grove High School was average. As far as resources are concerned, I can't really complain; we had computers readily available and were never lacking study materials. However, there was always an emphasis placed on standardized test scores, rather than the education of the student. It seemed like the school was only really concerned with the way you represented them, not how much YOU actually benefited from attending the school. That being said, I had several teachers who genuinely wanted to see their students succeed. Orange Grove has an excellent English department. I just wish such excellence was mirrored in their Math and Science departments.
