Ortega High School has a bad reputation but most of these opinions come from people who have never attended or even stepped foot on the campus. A friend of mine was worried about her grades and was afraid that she would be sent to OHS. She said she didn't like that school and said some other offensive comments about it. When I asked her why and if she has ever been there and she said she just didn't and she has only seen the campus. As a former student, i can say that attending Ortega was the best thing that has ever happened to me, academically and socially. The staff there is great. It is more like one big family. Everyone makes you feel welcomed, everyone knows basically everyone, and the fact that there is only a few kids helps out a lot because students get the attention and help they need. I even regret transferring back to my " home school" because OHS was ans is my home school. It was a great experience and it helped improve my personality and many aspects of my life.

Excellent school! The teachers are wonderful, very committed to their jobs. Parent participation is outstanding. James Rogers, principal, is great with the children, he knows each of them by name! He is very involved and very committed to his job. Office staff is more than helpful. Very clean environment, no bullying, all around great school! It is a joy to be a part of this school!

Ortega High is a great resource for students who are behind on credits and would benefit from the small class size and the opportunity for one on one assistance from the teacher. The acadenmic program is comparible to the comprehensive high schools and the same text books are used and the state standards are taught. There is an excellent program for students who have not passed the CAHSEE. There are art classes that that include drawing and painting and ceramics. There are monthly parent meetings and open house and back to school nights with good attendance. College informations is also offered.
