    Overall Experience: Almost all of my teachers were very approachable and actually cared about the students. The students cared/respected other students. The food sucked but lunch was an hour which was awesome. The dress code was very relaxed which was a good and bad thing. Almost everyone had a lot of school spirit but everyone went to at least one sporting event or play. Over all I loved this school!

    Overall Experience: Orem High is a really great school, so many great and friendly students that love everyone, but it can be a li'l bit cliquey and some of the policies are a little bit dumb but overall it's a great place and I love it there.
