Orchard Park High School has been a wonderful experience for my two oldest daughters. I have a junior and a senior and couldn’t be happier with the experience. The academics are top notch with many opportunities for excelled programs. My girls have been involved in music and theater and the program is amazing! There are many opportunities for vocal and instrumental activities and the support they have both received is wonderful. I fell they are both well prepared for college and beyond. They are well rounded, caring human beings thanks to the culture promoted at OP!

Its a very high level education administered to students by great teachers at all levels. Many advanced placement classes are offered and the school spirit is exceptionally fun! All areas of interest are accommodated through the options of electives to be taken or clubs to participate in.
I loved Orchard Park High School, I had amazing opportunities and friends. The teachers are nice but not too nice that they can be walked all over. They take their academics at OP very seriously. The rules are enforced quite strictly. That would be the reason I took away one star, the strictness at OP is insane for a Public school which is good in a way but sometimes it felt over the top. Overall amazing school with great people, academics and teachers.
