I loved Orono High School! The faculty is incredible. I am proud to say that all of the teachers go above and beyond teaching and are driven to make you succeed. Academically, the classes are very diverse and very inviting. The food is healthy and really good! I highly recommend joining a sports team, club, or after school activity. There are lots to choose from and it's a great way to put yourself out there and make new friends!
Orono is a welcoming place with a nice range of options for everyone! We have a great arts program as well as some good sports teams! Academics tend to be quite intense, but it's something Orono students just adjust to.
Orono High School has many things to offer to any student. One can become involved in countless activities wide-ranging from the school newspaper to cross country. As well as sports and clubs we have an amazing arts program that involves the musical, show choir, and many other arts including visual arts. We have great academics which include many AP classes. Orono is a university town that gives students the opportunity to take college classes for free. There is an excellent sense of home at Orono because we are a small school so you can connect with your teachers easier. Orono brings everyone together, we aren't just a school but a community.
