    "Upon enrolling my 8th grader in Orland Junior High, I had high hopes for a great academic year for him. Unfortunately, my expectations were replaced with anger, frustration and regret, for even had considered Orland Junior High to be a better choice for him to continue and complete his junior high education. Coming from a very prestigious Learning institution where he excelled academically,and was on the honor roll for consecutive Years this school has taken away my son's self esteem and drive to even come to school. The teachers appear to not be very interested in helping to understand the curriculum but stand as unengaged moderators waiting to give the students failing grades continuously, the math alone is ridiculously tough for many especially since the introduction of the controversial Digits program started. I look forward to the day my child no longer has to be subjected to this school which is only interested in receiving high marks from the state."

    "my experience at this school has definetly not been a very good one. i and many others i know have come home crying from people being snotty,leaving people out,and people turning on their friends because they were being made fun of by other students for making fun of them because they were hanging out the so called "unpopular/uncool" student.sure the academics and sports are impressive i dont think that it is worth having your childs feelings and self confidence bruised.i know that this school has counselors but all they do is make matters worse because the bully goes off and tells all of their friends that that person is a "tattletale",we also have bullying assemblys but noone in the school takes those seriously because the bully often doesnt even know that they are doing anything.im sorry to have to say all of this but this is 100% something everyone should know."

    "I'm a student at OJH, & i know that me and most of the kids feel the same way about the school. It is not as great as people have come to believe. The current princapal, Linda Kane, does not particulary care to even learn the sudents on a first name basis unless they are in the office on a regular basis. If parents could look at every classroom and go through the halls one day, they would see what we all see every day. It'd pretty clear why we don't talk to our parents or counclers about what we see, the need to fit in, to be like everybody else. There should be something done to stop it, but the talks we all have to have with the school counclers really aren't doing help, things just don't run smoothly around OJH."

    "OJ is an awesome school. We moved into the district two years ago and our experience with the school has been a very positive one. We have one child who is graduating this year and has many great memories about OJ. We also have another child who will continue at OJ who has adjusted well. The teaching staff is very good and the current principal is great. The only concern is that I hear possibly some of the fun extracurricular events are being taken away (i.e. Camp Edwards for 8th graders, pool party at the end of the year). This is quite unfortunate because I know the kids love it! Overall, OJ is a great experience for kids."

    "This is an awesome school! My oldest son has graduated from Orland Junior and gone on to High School, my middle son is in 8th grade and my youngest son is in 6th grade. We love Orland Junior. There are many extra-curricular activities, the teachers are wonderful, the academics programs are excellant, and no child gets left behind. This is a school to be proud of!"
