Orange Elementary School is an awesome place to learn! Our Orange Family consists of 562 terrific students, very supportive parents, and an extremely dedicated staff eager to facilitate and drive student achievement. Student achievement goals focus on literacy (to include writing), math, and science. School climate and safety are promoted through the beliefs and values of the Leader in Me – Seven Habits and the PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Supports) initiative to celebrate successes in which student expectations for behavior are clearly defined.
Other support systems guiding the children and staff in striving for high expectations include the strong involvement and leadership of the Orange Parent Association and our Partners in Education. Orange is very fortunate and proud to work with our caring community Partners: South Waterloo Church of the Brethren, Harmony House, Cedar Valley Arboretum & Botanic Gardens, Mediacom, Hawkeye Community College, the University of Northern Iowa KDP (Kappa Delta Pi) Honor Society, and Liberty Bank.
Orange School is proud to be a “community of learners!”
