Principal's Message

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.
