I go to this school and it is wonderful with all the discipline and the program this school provides also a special thanks to the principal that made this all possible.

The school is wonderful and the teachers offer much motivation and support to the students. The only bad thing is that the nearby community school Cooper only goes up to 5th grade and so those students have to come in to Orozco. They bring the scores down by quite a bit and distract the students who have been in Orozco for most of their academic career. Children who have attended Orozco are taught dicipline and get along very well with eachother as opposed to the children from Cooper who tend to be a bit conflictive. I also did not approve of the student teacher program. It did nothing but confuse most of the students and did not offer much help to those who needed it the most.

This is a school with great teachers and a principal who really cares about her students. The gifted program is really a great way to challenge students, to strive for their highest potential. Most of the students in the gifted program end up in excellent high schools like: Whitney Young, Lane Tech, Jones, Payton, St. Ignatius. The art programs also has great instructors with well known artists like Fransisco Mendoza who has made a lot of contributions to the community with his extraordinary art work.

Since my child has been in this school has improve in some way the cognitive area, but in the motivational and in the way that they encourage children to continue study they have to improve a lot. Because they say is gifted program, children many times feels in a really stressfull situation. Teachers in the first grade do not help in this matter and make that many children that really have the potential go of the program and have a low selfsteem of their future. I could say that the administration needs improve more, because same family member work there and are like a society in this school.

I think this is the best school ever. It offers an academically enriched gifted program for the future prodigies of our nation. The students get to experience highschool classes in eight grade and that really prepares them for the real thing.

Considering this is a public school I think it is quite a decent one. The education it gives considering the neighborhood its in and the money it has its very good. The education seems to decline as it the years go up(6th grade and higher) for this school but it really is the people around the neighborhood that bring it down a lot because of how their attitude shapes. The education is still good but the will of the students goes down and the location its in might have to do with that.
