Fun Fact
Orange Glen had the greatest number of Biliteracy Seal earners as compared to all schools in Escondido Union High School District.  We produce the most biliterate and bilingual students, many of whom go on to earn college credits in language before even graduating from high school.  We hope that we can share our bilingual and biliteracy skills with the community as we prepare students and our community for movement into the 21st century!
