At West Orange Stark High School, they're a lot of pros and cons to attending this school. It's inside a good, small environment in Orange, Texas. We have a really good football team. NFL player for the Seattle Seahawks, Earl Thomas III, graduated from here. Recently, our school had made it to the state championship in football, twice! They won the championship in 2015 but lost in 2014. All other sports aren't very popular and don't win many games except football and volleyball. Overall, the education there is pretty good and it has improved over the years! The education use to be very poor, now I say the education is fair! They have some good teacher but they also have some horrible teachers. I'd say I'd give the teachers and administration and 6 overall. They just need to find better teachers and AP's and get more involved in the community with the clubs at the school and get better coaching staff for other sports besides football and volleyball.

Although I really liked some of the teacher, the students at this school is just terrible. Most of the students who attend this highschool does not care, especially the older kids. This school also doesn't offer much AP classes. Overall, it's not a terrible school, it just have terrible students that make the school look terrible.
My experience at West Orange Stark High School has been great throughout the years. The staff is friendly and helpful. I would like to see some changes as far as school lunches and higher levels of security, but other than that it's great.
