Orange Grove is a good and friendly community that is very focused on the youth of the community whether in the sports programs or band, and be even the local church programs for the youth are amazing. It is a wonderful place to raise children to become good citizens with kind hearts. Everyone comes together to help each other out in times of need, and it is a beautiful thing to be there for your neighbors whether personally knowing them or not. These are the things needed to keep values alive. This small farm town may be small in size, but big in heart. Friday nights you can find almost everyone at the Bulldog football stadium wearing their team colors of orange and black proudly. The schools in the district are rated exemplary campuses by the state of Texas and education is priority to the school board at OGISD.

Orange Grove is very conservative, they need to be open minded towards new opportunities. The high school is also very underdeveloped when it comes to offering classes.
Orange Grove is clean, bustling rural town where everyone knows one another and isn't afraid to help a friendly neighbor or stranger out.
