    Former student. I can tell you right now that this is not the place to send your child to school if you are in any way looking for a school that is accepting to minorities or any stature. Half of the teachers don't care the other half are struggling to demand the students' attention. Most of the students are not interested in learning and the ones that are are not in a suitable environment to do so. I cannot tell you how much I missed in my mathematics and science classes because the teacher was struggling to keep the students in order. Administration is close-minded and takes a "friendly" authority figure approach that is until you come across an actual issue. Then they are unwilling to listen and like to point fingers. I hated my experience here. That is why I moved on literally the same night of graduation.

    I am a teacher at Orangefield High School and a parent of two little ones at the elementary school. I absolutely love this school district. I have been teaching for over ten years and I've worked in three other districts. This district is wonderful. The principals care about the teachers and the students. The superintendent actually makes the effort to get to know the students. The food is wonderful and my student enjoy going to school here. My children are getting a top-notch education from caring teachers. I highly recommend this district for its strong moral values and family centered education.
