The mission of Orangewood High School is to provide students a supportive and alternative educational environment empowering them with the skills to be responsible and to succeed academically, vocationally, and socially.


The Vision of Orangewood High School is that it exists to provide educational experiences for students who, for a variety of reasons, need an alternative method of learning from that which the traditional high school has to offer. It is our goal to provide a relevant education within a flexible atmosphere and a small school environment. Course curriculum is aligned with the Common Core State Standards for high school education and as often as possible, the subject material will be related to the practical aspects of everyday living and future career needs. The objective of each course is to assist students in developing their potential according to their unique capabilities and to encourage every student to gain a strong, positive sense of self-worth.
