It has been a very busy and amazing year!

We continue to accomplish things as a school that set us apart from the rest of the high schools in our area, state, and nation. We started off the school year by being recognized as one of the top 1000 high schools in the United States. This was compared to almost 30,000 high schools nationwide. This is no small accomplishment and it takes a solid team including students, parents, and an entire school staff to all be on the same page to achieve things like this.

I want to recognize all of the hard work that was put in by every single person within the OAHS family to help our students to be their very best. To all Spartans, remember that you only get one chance at life and the decisions you make will determine what you make of the opportunities that you have. Hold yourself to a high standard and don’t be afraid to be different. That is what we are all about at Orcutt Academy.
