Orange High School is a wonderful School. My kids are constantly challenged and encourage to pursue their dreams. The Teachers are very well trained and are very supportive. I am delighted with our choice for this School!.

terrible school...the kids are very pressured to meet unrealistic standards, and if you are not an ap student, you are not considered smart by any means. Awful teachers - unenthusiastic and mean to students. There are plenty of academic programs, yes,but the music program is completely mind blowing at how terrible it is. the band director is nowhere near up to par, and neither is the orchestra teacher. The kids drink and smoke and it is NOT the environment I want for my child. We are withdrawing from this school ASAP.

Our son attended Orange for 3 years and they were, with the exception of the English teachers, a nightmare. Administration were inattentive to student concerns and faculty (except those terrific English teachers) were straight out of the 1950s - dogmatic and non-creative.

Orange schools are much better than many other local schools in the area, but they lack alot. Also the school is very good with AP and honors courses, but [I feel] if you take cp classes you education is very average and not up to the rest of the standards at the school. The school as a lot of money and alot of extracirruculars which is a plus.

It is amazing that a school like Orange known for its academic excellence is very insensitive to diversity. Unless they work hard to change it the school will be doing a great injustice to students who graduate from there in preparing for the real world experience. Hopefully the new president will focus on this. If I could feel this insensitivity as a parent wlakin gthrough the school I cannot imagine what my child went through foo 3 years at this school. I think it could be a model school for the nation if the administrators work hard to correct this.

Emphasis seems to be on Honors & AP courses. The distinction between College Prep & advanced courses is how much the student has to be taught by the teacher vs. learning independently. This school system works hard to keep students out of qualifying for special services (504 plans & IEPs.

OHS prepared me extremely well for college. I would chose Orange for my kids over any of the local private schools.
