Innovation & Creativity


RU Grad
The Orange Southwest School District is committed to providing students with unique and innovative programs designed to help them excel in college, the workforce, the military, or wherever they choose to go after graduation.

Whether it’s introducing them to other cultures through exchanges with our sister schools in Germany and Japan; our Workforce Learning initiative, where we develop partnerships with area businesses to prepare students for successful careers after graduation; our School of Tech, where we expose students to the world of entrepreneurship, design, and manufacturing; our Project Based Learning laboratory, where students engage in real-life problems spanning public and private sector issues in finance, communications, higher-ed, and public administration; or our elementary school Farm to School program, which links the school to over 20 local agriculture providers;  OSSD students learn to be respectful citizens of our local and global community.

We invite you to learn more about the creativity and innovation that defines an OSSD education. If you like what you see, come shadow us for a day. Meet some of our educators. We think you’ll agree with the dozens of colleges, universities, business leaders, and government officials who’ve told us, year after year, that graduates of the OSSD schools are some of the best prepared young people they’ve ever met.
