Orangeview Junior High School Reviews
I was there as a student the day that it opened in January of 1958. Prior to that, we were on half days with Western High. They had mornings, we had afternoons. At the time that I was ther more than half a century ago, the school was not exceptionally overcrowded, but at that time there were also only 2 high schools in the district and 2 junior highs. The area was growing fast. I continued until summer of 1959; went to Dearborn, MI and returned to Western in the fall of 1961. To me, those were "the gool ol' days." I was by no means an A student as far as grades, but I was an A student when it came to courtesiy etc. In that respect, things were much more that way in those days. Looks like ethnicity has changed a lot. There were many Hispanic, but I don't believe that it was as high as 63%. I could be wrong. Had many friends in an case!
When I went to MI at age 14, I sent 80 Christmas cards, primarily to California! A 14 year old...80 Christmas cards!
