They are patient and kind and always willing to take the time to talk to parents and answer questions. Its been 7 yrs since we've relocated to Brea and my ...  Read more

My children have been enrolled in this school since kindergarten and since day one it has not been a pleasant one. First off the office workers are rude and unpleasant. The office workers talk to parents like they are children and just belittle them. Sometimes they don't even bother to acknowledge a ...  Read more

My daughter was enrolled here in the 6th grade only and loved the school. Mrs Hollenbeck is an amazing teacher. My son has been there since kindergarten and now in the fourth grade. We have had some hit and miss with his teachers. He excelled in 1st and 2nd. Mrs Lein and Rowatt always had the kids best ...  Read more

My child has been in the Multiage program at Orangethorpe and it's been amazing. It is like a "school within a school" which may touch off issues in the greater school community, but if I could do it all over again I would. Orangethorpe in general is not the ideal school I'd send my child to, but this ...  Read more

My children attend Orangethorpe Elementary. I believe the teachers really care about our children. They have 1:1 laptops that keep my kids interested in learning. The teachers support kids to do their best. This year we have a new Principal Dr. Segovia-Hale, she is what we have needed. She loves our ...  Read more

Both my daughters attended this school. At first, I was a little aprehensive due to the fact the school's appearance is nasty. However, after the their first year, my girls absolutely loved this school. At least the teachers that taught my daughters were caring, competent, communicated to me very ...  Read more

My son transferred to Orangethorpe from another Fullerton school and from day one I have not been happy. It is hard to get information. Even though my son's class was a job share he had a lot of subs though out the year which made learning difficult. We just got the STAR scores and his scores ...  Read more

Orangethorpe is the worst school in the history of schools! If I could rate a 0, I would. The staff is, not only uncooperative, but they are highly incompetent as well. The school has some good teachers, but this does not make up for all other short comings, which there is too many to list. If you ...  Read more
