About Our School
All schools in the Washington Elementary School District are committed to achieving excellence for every child, every day, every opportunity.

Engaged in Excellence - Orangewood School is a K-8 school committed to close communication among staff, parents, students and community. Orangewood School's curriculum is fully aligned with State Standards. Orangewood provides art, music and PE for all grade levels.

We encourage parental involvement, visitation and choice, and working together to provide learning environments that are supportive of students' needs. Building student self-esteem, maintaining high staff morale, and holding high expectations for excellence in behavior and academics are priorities in our school. Fine arts and sciences are strongly supported and integrated throughout our curriculum.

Our Mission
Our mission is to prepare students to become literate, creative, responsible, lifelong learners in partnership with families and the community.

 Cougar Pride
At Orangewood, we are using the Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS)
process.  PBIS is a combination of promoting positive school culture initiatives with positive discipline programming.  We have four school-wide rules, which cover every area of our campus during school hours.  These new rules are referred to as our "Cougar Pride" expectations:
  • Respect Yourself
  • Respect Others
  • Respect Learning
  • Respect Property
The new expectations are also tied to positive incentives, such as "caught being good" coins.  When a student is exhibiting respectful behavior according to the expectations, they may receive a coin as a reward.  The coin is then turned in to the classroom teacher, and each class has a goal tied to a classroom reward.  As the year progresses, we will add more positive incentives to encourage students to exhibit respectful behavior throughout the school.
