Overall the experiences I have had at Orion have been very good. I came in as a 6th grader to the district and I instantly felt welcome into the school atmosphere, due to the nice teachers and the very friendly students who surrounded me. I would like to see a program designed to help tutor students, using the other students because I feel it can be very beneficial for a student to learn from their peers and it also helps the student teaching because they can really expand their understanding when discovering ways to help others understand.

I have loved this school. I have lived in this district since my Kindergarten year. The teachers will care for you and make sure you are understanding the lessons. Over the past years, Orion High School has grown majorly in academics. The school is now one of the highest ranked for academics in the area. There is very little diversity. There are many clubs and activities to do. You can even get new clubs approved whenever you want! The administration is very involved in student life and knows everyone by name.The sports have gotten better and better each year and have gone to state many times. Overall, it is an amazing school and I would really recommend attending.
My high school was small, so I knew everyone I went to school with. Some of my best years were spent at this high school. I was very involved with sports and cheerleading. I loved being at our football/basketball games because the environment was so upbeat. I had many good teachers, especially in the science and math department. They helped make my high school experience a little better.
