Principal's Message

Welcome to our school. As a student in our school you are following the path taken by the many thousands of former students who are proud to be Patriots. It has been over 50 years since we first opened the doors of Orange Glen High School at what was then a new school out in the orange groves on the east side of Escondido. This year we have opened our doors again to continue that long and proud tradition of excellence with you and your fellow students. Our administration and staff will do the very best we can to ensure that your time at Orange Glen will be filled with fun, excitement and challenges. We expect that you will grow both intellectually and socially and gain the skills to assure you become a complex thinker, effective communicator, a healthy individual, and quality producer. These are some of our expected school-wide learning results. Success comes from focusing and sustaining your efforts over time. Find a goal you want to Achieve and Believe in yourself as you Commit to achieving that goal. Those are the ABC's of success. As you accomplish this you will also establish habits that will help you go forward through school and successfully journey into young adulthood. We have learned that successful attitudes follow successful behavior. If you establish and practice effective ways of behaving in school you will in turn develop attitudes that support and protect your journey on the path to success. This year our staff looks forward to the time we will share with you. Our best wishes for a successful year at OGHS! Tom Allison, Principal
