    Overall Experience: If you aren't popular, it can take some time to find where you fit in at OHS. That being said, once you find your group, it can be a blast!

    Overall Experience: It's been great! Most teachers are pretty easy to work with, although sometimes it's hard to catch them before or after school.

    Overall Experience: When I was brand new I simply hated the school because I was afraid of making friends, and honestly it took me a good four months before I made set friends. Once I made friends I started having a better experience. The teachers are all so cool and you can tell that they genuinely care about there students.

    Overall Experience: I love Orem High School. We have so much school spirit and school pride. Out of every high school in Utah I think everyone would agree that Orem High is the kindest, one of the safest schools. That is what makes us unique, for the majority, we are one big happy family. It's always been a very safe welcoming environment. I think if I were to have a do over and begin at sophomore year again, I would be more outgoing and make more friends. I don't regret anything though. Orem high has been so memorable and I really will miss being an Orem Tiger.
