I love Orem High School! The teachers are all wonderful, not only as teachers, but as mentors and friends. They are very supportive of everyone's interests. Orem High hosts several student activities each month and I've enjoyed each of the activities I've attended. The students at Orem High are generally very kind and inclusive. I’ve enjoyed making friends through the numerous extracurricular activities Orem High offers. Orem High has wonderful programs for the performing arts, athletics, and music, just to name a few. I feel very privileged to have been able to enjoy the Orem High School 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!

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.
