Dragon School

Dragon School is a program designed to support and enhance all new students’ academic success. New students to Orangewood are grouped together for the first week of their enrollment. The objectives of this Dragon School are to:

  • assess basic academic skills
  • develop strategies such as organization, time management, setting goals, effective communication, critical thinking, problem solving, and practical collaboration
  • strengthen students’ sense of confidence, choice, responsibility, and community
  • provide a smooth transition for both students and staff
  • empower students to be successful in school and life

Students are given the necessary information to have a clear understanding of the policies, procedures and opportunities of their new school. They work closely with teachers, counselors, and administrative staff to develop a plan for success at OHS. More importantly, students experience a sense of belonging, which is critical to their success.
