The mission of the Orange Elementary School District is to meet the needs of every child in our schools through an exciting educational program that challenges all children to reach their fullest potential. Our school programs are based on the premise that all children can and will be successful. Working in a safe and healthy environment, Orange Elementary Schools will work collaboratively with parents and guardians, and community members to provide the best educational opportunity possible for each child. We want our schools to be learning communities where every child, regardless of race, color, gender, religion, national origin, sexual orientation or disability can achieve maximum intellectual and social growth
