    Extracurriculars: I was a big part of extracurricular activities. I didnt do many clubs so i don't know quite how they are. I was mostly into sports and i know those were amazing and always very supported.

    Overall Experience: The people at this school were amazing. I made so many friends and had wonderful experiences with sports, dances, and great friendships that were made. This school gave me opportunities to higher my education by doing college classes at the same time and graduate with a Medical Assistant. The staff was fun and always let the students do fun activites. The school is new and beautiful and always kept clean. I would choose this school again because my high school experience was much needed. I learned a lot and made a lot of good and bad choices that i learned from. Its great to be an Orem High Tiger!

    Teachers: I had some great teachers that were very intelligent. Especially my chemistry teacher, he was very impressive with how he taught his students. He made it so easy to understand and was always there to help people who needed help. But most of the other teachers made you feel almost invisible, they weren't always there to help and some made you feel dumb with the questions you approached them with. The consistency with grading was decent but not always the best. Many teachers were good at pulling you into the lesson so it was interesting and helped you learn topics easier.

    Health & Safety: Orem High feels and seems to be very safe. Drug and alcohol problems are basically invisible, and there is very little bullying there. Those who are bullied can anonymously turn to administration for help.

    Extracurriculars: I really love the extracurriculars here- They don't have a ton, but they have all of the essential favorites, and those are well cared-for. The best part is, if there's anything a student wants to create, they can start that club the same year they thought of it.
