This school's class sizes keep rising, despite research supporting smaller class size leads to better education. Class sizes average 28+ students per class, even in science labs. To retain a high rating, teachers will need to be hired to keep a lower student to teacher ratio.
Don't believe the student to teacher ratio of 13/1. My daughter has never had a class of only 13 students, in fact her english class has 32 and there aren't even enough chairs!
Unfortunately, based on the previous post of a former student, the academic programs seem to not include grammar and spelling skills. Seriously, I am also a former student of ORRHS, and I appreciate my education there. I remember many of my teachers very fondly, and I am grateful for the guidance that they provided.
The academic programs are advanced yet they still have great home ec and shop courses. The level of parental involvement is high. The sports programs are well funded but art and music are strugling for funding and students. This has consistantly been one of the better public schools in the state. A large proportion of the students go on to 4 your schools.
