I love Orem High School! I was scared of transitioning from junior high into high school, but Orem made it easy and comfortable. The general classes are adaptable and there are so many options to fit students' interests and work ethic. The AP classes are challenging for top students and incredibly educational; these class benefits are all due to the teachers. Our teachers are amazing, and they all do everything they can to ensure the success of their students.
The one thing I would change about Orem is the interactions students have with each other- and that's not an easy, if impossible, thing to do. Groups of students can really be harmful to others, and it's not an easy thing to watch. Luckily, we have organizations of students and teachers dedicated to that effort and it has been steadily improving. Of course, sometimes you cannot help but have students who want to do damage to others, but our school does a great job of keeping it in check.

The school spirit here is just amazing! It's always fun going to games and seeing everyone support each other. Everyone here is so nice and easy to talk too. We get to know each other and it's always great making new friends. The teachers here are great! They are always there to help students no matter what and it makes us students, at Orem High, feel welcomed.
Orem High School is a great school. What I love about it is how welcoming it feels and especially how safe it feels as well. I never feel scared or worried to go to school. Also, the teachers are awesome! They really know how to help students understand the concepts of whatever subject they're learning, which really helps.
