    "Orono was a horrible experience. I went for most of my school years, because it was hard to find a close district to open enroll in. I was bullied and the staff did nothing about it except for meet with me and tell me that it would stop. Also, the students and staff believe that Orono offers "academic excellence", but at the school I transferred to, there were much more options for AP and Honors courses. Academically, Orono is a decent school, but with the wealth and the cliques, Orono is not a school where it is easy to have positive social influences. I know that I was not the only victim, and many people who weren't star athletes or tall and thin were bullied as well."

    "I believe I am a very well-rounded person thanks to my education at Orono. It is not a private school, but the curriculum helped prepare me for college. Other students at my university often ask me how I do so well even after missing lectures. I know I gained an excellent education at Orono, but I would never send my children there. In all honesty, attending Orono was a miserable experience. The student body is predominantly white, wealthy republicans, and anybody who does not fit that mold is ostracized. I feel that the students at Orono are exceptionally rude. Coming from a family with a slight ethnic background, my siblings and I dealt with many racial slurs from both students and mainly older members on staff at Orono. I know I am a very well-educated person because of Orono High School, but be cautious in choosing this school district."

    "Great School Good programs for those with learning disabilities and gifted students. Poor facilities (old school) motivated kids (middle to high socioeconomic class) Involved Parents Lots of Extracurricular Options (Sports, Theatre, Math Club, etc) Safe (very little to no violence) Nice area. All the other Orono Schools are on the same street. Great Test Scores The main downside in my experience were there administrators. They liked having things their way and were not open to much creativity in learning or student-led opportunities. In reality, Orono is a great school because of the caliber of the students and the high level of parental involvement."

    "Orono is an amaing school. People have said that it's really clique-y, but it really depends on the grade. The group of people that go to orono high school are creative and for the most part, very friendly. Orono has one of the best student leadership programs in the state, and the character program is exemplary. The community is very tight-knit, and although the upper class is dominant, there is not a lack of middle class. The segregations for money may have existed in the past, but there is little to no segregation for this reason now. The faculty is great, and almost all of the students get involved in the extra curriculars."

    "Those born and raised in the Orono area have found a panacea where wealthy is the norm, and the families have known each other forever. For a newcomer, this school is overwhelmingly difficult. The staff expects everyone to know how things operate, since nearly everyone has lived here their whole lives. things are not explained, and the office staff is quite unfriendly, rude and impatient when you ask questions. Cliques are rampant and it is very difficult to fit in to the many already established groups. So called 'middle class' is considered the lower class here, as most of the student body is very wealthy. ie: my child's friends have private theaters, pools, housekeepers & drive fancy cars. Academically, the school is fine..socially, a major challenge. Safety is also a concern, since in our case, the principal was apathetic at best to our concerns."
