Orangeview is an amazing school. I am currently a student there and I love it!!!! This school still has a bad reputation but I don't know why. The teachers are great and really care about your studies. I definitely recommend it.


Posted September 19, 2011

The school is great, I was once a student there, On all the benchmark tests in our math class, we've gotten first place, even above oxford which is a very smart school. We have exceeded the standards last year.

This school has ongoing violence and an incompetent principal. A few teachers were excellent, but Orangeview is NOT safe. A frequent excuse I heard was, 'the class is so large, I can't control everything'. Our kids deserve better.

Very disappointed with the school even after a new principal was brought in. Counselors & teachers do not seem to care about the educational well-being of students. Teachers do not communicate to parents. They seem to just go with the flow.

Unsafe, Unsatisfactory and extremely uncooperative staff.

Most of the teachers are very caring and dedicated. The recent change in leadership has had a positive improvement on the school.

As the school year has ended for my Niece Melanie and Nephew Larrie I just want to say Thank You! to the wonderful music program at your school and pray that it will continue at 'Western High', many thanks to Mr. Chris Watt he is inspirational and ver highly motivated and gave the kids a chance to expierence different environments to perform in, he is such a wonderful male role model for so many kids. Keep up the great work, and again thank you for being there for my Niece and Nephew. Note: As I was standing in the background at the Segstrom Hall Event, there were so many Adults making such wonderful comments and asking where this great group was from, I told them and they were delighted.

Orangeview has made a dramatic change in my daughter, she attended her last year of junior high her and has made tremendous strides. The teachers in Team 5 encouraged, nutured and individualized her. They took her needs and attended to them on a personal level. She has always been a good student, but these caring teachers made her last year at junior high, one of her best. She will be attending High School with a great attitude and a fervor for school which is lacking these days. My deepest thanks to all of the teachers and staff at Orangeview.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
