    I am just finishing up my first year teaching at Orange Charter School and have to say how much I love it. The class sizes are small we are provided with supplies and materials we need to teach and the families are committed to their child's education. It really feels like a family rather than an institution. I feel lucky and blessed to be here.

    This school has been a great school for my children. My oldest child attended 6-8 grade. My younger daughter is still attending the school. They really helped my children to succeed! Both my children have enjoyed going to school here. The teachers go above and beyond when teaching the kids!

    As one of the students of OCS I can tell you that this school has what is esencial for what we the students need to know. Though the school isn't big nor fancy it is all we need to learn. Not to long ago bulliying was not allowed now are scool can be in peace. Though being a student I see little quarells every now and then. Well even though the school is made for education there are... er friendships. For example some girls like some boys and some boys like some girls. Furthermore some students do extrodenary on tests while some do not. But by knowing this school I know for sure they will teach everyone so that they will succeed! This is my review.

    Lack of uptight social climbing parents driving kids in silly bureaucratic environment. Rather small efficient quality education with a great vibe that can accommodate my child's individuality.

    I love Orange County Charter School because they have vegetarian lunches and want an alternative to dissecting animals.

    OCS is small personal academically sound with great teachers. OCS is accepting of diverse beliefs and lifestyles

    We hired Dr. Mark Borkowski to be our principal last year and he is a godsend! Note that the reviews of OCS which rated the principal leadership as 4/5 were done before he came. Dr. B works very well with the Board and the teachers. Our teachers are a tight-knit dedicated team who are always striving to improve year after year. Low turn over - in families and teaching staff says it all. People are here by choice and they love it.

    I was a student at OCS from K-8 and I graduated in '07. Becuase of this I really had a chance to watch the school grow. The wonderful teachers there really challenge all their students and thanks to them I had a 13+ reading level when I was in the sixth grade. I really appreciate the care I recieved there and I wouldn't change a single experience.

    I am very happy with this school. The teachers are loving and about the education and well being of the children. My child is above his grade level in reading due to the attention that he has recieved at this school.

    We love this school. We have tried private christian schools and public schools and we think we have found a happy medium. This charter school is very family and individual oriented. Small class sizes and individual attention equals happier students with a better understanding of classwork.
