Quite decent school. It's improved vastly from before - competent teachers, a technology-based curriculum thanks to the grant they received, and students more-or-less willing to learn. It might be a little too technology-dependent (students often get left behind or have to take a more tedious alternative if they have a broken or missing laptop) the school might be a little too focused on raising AIMS scores (the math and language arts classes are twice as long as the other classes), and the parents might not be very involved, but it's got a good future ahead of them with the new principal and enthusiastic teachers. They're having a beautification project soon, too. Can't wait to see how that goes.
im a student at orsngedale it a good school you learn about you're feture and how u could get a education
Orangedale Jr. High has come a long way in the last few months. The school has highly qualified teachers who really care about the students and their education. Mrs. O'Brien has made some fantastic changes and things are starting to look good for Orangedale. Parents, however, are not involved, and do not help motivate their children. In order for 7th and 8th graders to achieve it is necessary for parents to be involved.
my daughter has gone to this school since 7th grade and i think that she could get a better education somewher else i am so going to change schools there test scores are horrible and my daughter dont learn anything
I really like orangedale school. They have the best staff. My kids have learned so much. I like it when they stand outstand to make sure that they get on campus staff and how they interact with the kids. Also when the principle comes out and greats everyone.. Not all schools do that. So 'Go Rattlers'..
Some of the teachers are fabuloous; however, they do not have the full support of the administration. The students in the 8th grade, are very disrespectful. It is sad to see how this school is now, compared to how it use to be. It's time for some changes to be made at orangedale, and I do not think that the administration is ready for change.
My child has been in Orangedale since Kindergarten. K-1 and 2 were great. Very dissatisfied with the school website and calendar as well as response from the office and principle about the transportation issues and educational milestones. Looking to transfer.
Since my daughter start in this school, she's doing better, I love this school , the teacher are very interesting in his development and success. For me is the number 1.
I love this school ! It's great to see the principal interacting with the kids.
This is a great school! The kids are polite, the principle is awesome and the teachers fabulous. I've been very please with my children's progress here. The PTO is small & very disorganized though, with little notice on events or meetings, it's very hard to participate.
I really believe Orangdale is a great school, in a great district. The Principal is very involved and had high expectations for his students and staff. My concern is the parental involvment. I'm involved in the P.T.O. and it has been extremely hard to get parents to participate.
