Horrible learning environment. Recently moved to Orland to improve the quality of life for my family; big mistake. The kids around this town are just not raised with any humility and its a town full of gossip and mean people. The teachers don't listen to the students and the parents don't correct there children. Everyone here is better than everyone else, its terrible. I have 3 straight A students and have never had any problems with previous schools my children attended. Now my kids are constantly ridiculed by bullies and mean people which this town/schools are not in short of. What's wrong with being nice and humble. The people around here act so tough but they are really weak and insecure. Should have just stayed in Los Angeles.
