Orinda Academy Reviews

The small amount of students, while resulting in limited class choices, is a godsend for the socially unconfident. The classes aren't usually split into advanced and normal, so some classes may move too slowly for the motivated student. However, the administration is extremely accommodating if you want to take on extra challenges to make your curriculum more rigorous. At the same time, if you need extra help they can give you that too. To quote my father, "I have never seen a school that gives *this* much of a s*** about its students." The teachers are there to help you every step of the way, and the fact that there are so few students results in amazing leadership opportunities for the motivated (instead of competing with dozens of students to be cheer captain or Student Council President, you're competing with one or two at most). This school has given me tons of confidence in my social interactions and has jump started my academic career. I went from someone who skipped school once every couple weeks to someone who loathed to miss even a day when I was sick. OA has definitely changed my life for the better, and a similar sentiment has been echoed by my classmates.
