Vision Statement

Orcutt Junior High School, which stands at the doorstep of America’s West Coast aerospace launch site, will serve as an educational launch pad for our students; one that will prepare them well for their voyage to high school and beyond. Orcutt Junior High School will provide a stimulating, rewarding, and safe environment for all students to gain a sincere appreciation for life-long learning, as well as developing academic, social, and personal responsibility skills needed by all members of our society.

School-Wide Goal

The goal of education at Orcutt Junior High School is teaching and learning about self-realization, human relationships, self-sufficiency, and civic responsibility while facilitating a smooth transition from elementary school into high school. You should feel confident in the fact that your student will move from an elementary environment into a welcoming and friendly seventh grade; then through articulation and preparation in eighth grade, students will feel prepared and comfortable about moving into the departmentalized high school environment.
