Working To Make Every Child's Potential A Reality

Working To Make Every Child's Potential A Reality
The Orange High School Parent Teacher Association ("OHS PTA") provides communication and fosters a closer relationship between Orange High School and the families of our students. We provide many services to the schools, promote the welfare of students, and work with the schools to provide quality education for all young people in the Orange School District. This webpage provides basic information about our activities. If you have any questions, please contact any Board member. We appreciate your support as a member, as a volunteer, and of our fundraisers.
