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!

I have loved every minute of high school. The students genuinely care about each other, the teachers are extremely easy to get along with, and most people have school spirit! One thing that has made a difference is that the focus of Student Council has been to be friends with everyone! Their goal has been to make sure everyone has at least one friend and that everyone feels comfortable talking to a student council member if they ever need help with anything! Usually Student Council members are the popular kids in the school that think they're better than everyone else but that is not how the student council is at Orem High. They are the kids that are nice to everyone no matter what and are truly making a difference in the students lives.

Orem High is a great school! All of our teachers are fabulous(With the exception of an unnamed physics teacher)! We especially have a great Choir and Drama programs---if you're into the arts. We also have fantastic sports at the school. We are a 3A size school, but in everything we compete in---theater, music, sports, FBLA, FCCLA---we compete as a 4A because so many of our students are invested in these activities.
