Welcome to Orange Glen High School! It was a privilege to be selected as principal of OG in 2016 and I am honored to be working with a team highly committed to preparing every student for a bright future. For over 50 years, “Patriot Pride” has resounded on campus, as well as in the community. Thanks to the efforts and support of staff, families, alumni, business leaders and others, Orange Glen can celebrate many accomplishments.
At Orange Glen, you will find a wide range of programs, activities and opportunities for students to explore and develop as they prepare to become college and career ready. Whether it be in the nationally recognized AVID program, strong College, Career & Technical Education (CCTE) courses, the highly decorated NJROTCs, or as a member of a team (such as the Elite 8 Basketball team) students are actively learning the value of striving to do their very best.
Parents continue to be an integral part in the personal and career success of all students. Recently, a Parent Center opened on campus offering a variety of workshops, ESL classes, Parents Institute for Quality Education (PIQE) and more. We invite you to participate as we work together to help our youth navigate the challenges, choices, consequences and responsibilities of growing up in today’s world.
While we are very proud of recently earning the maximum six-year accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), our work is never done. We remain focused on providing a safe, quality learning environment at Orange Glen in which students can strive to reach their own unique goals.
It is gratifying to witness the joy OG students display when learning they have mastered a difficult math concept, earned a prestigious scholarship, overcome obstacles in their personal lives, or received acceptance to an Ivy League College. I look forward to continuing to be a part of the Orange Glen family and helping to shape the future of our students and community.

Another free flu clinic Tuesday, Oct. 23 from 3:30-7:30 pm!Featured Photo
The clinic is open to everyone in our community from students to our parents, grandparents and even our next-door neighbors so feel free to share it with those you know would benefit from it.
Parents/legal guardians who can't come to the clinic with the students have the option of signing a release form they will get in an email this weekend via email. Students can bring the one-page form signed with them to get their shot.

OGHS Music Department students hosted the 2018 Orange Glen Invitational Field Tournament this past Saturday. After almost 20 years of being absent, competitive marching bands returned to the OGHS Campus and the City of Escondido to demonstrate their incredible talent and artistry.
Please join me in congratulating Evelyn for being selected as the August Student-of-the-Month for the NJROTC department! Evelyn demonstrates incredible work ethic and character and presents as a student with incredible determination. She is an excellent example of what it means to be have Patriot PRIDE. Congrats, Evelyn!
Mr. Domingo is an outstanding teacher in our Foreign Language department. He is constantly helping students in and out of the classroom. He is also an avid fan of all OG sports, as he frequently attends and supports our athletic program. He also teaches 3 AP Spanish classes. Thank you Mr. Domingo!
