Orange Glen High School Reviews
I am very pleased with Orange Glenn and the education my son is receiving. The theater department is wonderful, and the "Patriot Update" is a fine show produced with literally no budget. My son's teachers know their material. I would like to see more use of video and the school's website however, it would help inform parent's and students about the educational opportunities available there.
My child attends this school. As a parent, I am very dissapointed with some of the staff on board. They do not treat student as individuals. They try to put good students in line with the bad ones. This is unfair. They tend to lean more towards their own beliefs and not the student(s). I do not like this High School!
I am currently a student at this school and it is a joke. There are terrible teachers who are only there because they have tenure, students who could care less about whether or not they graduate, etc. I am serious about my education, and this school is pathetic.
