Principal's Message

Welcome to Orange Grove Middle School-Home of the Ocelots! It is a privilege for me to serve you as your new principal. This upcoming year is full of many fantastic and exciting plans to both engage and challenge our students in a well-rounded and well-balanced education.

For more than 50 years Orange Grove has maintained a Tradition of Success in academics, athletics, and beyond the classroom. Our success is due in large part to the caring, dedicated, and expert teachers and staff who inspire students individual growth while they hold high expectations for academics and behavior. Whether they are greeting you at the gate in morning, waving to you in the hallway at lunch, or tutoring you after school, everyone here at Orange Grove is here to help guide you on the road to academic and personal success. Everyone here plays a role in helping you to dream bigger and inspire you to work harder so that we can all celebrate more. This is what Ocelots have done for a better part of a half century. This is the Legacy of Excellence you will be part of and contribute too this school year and throughout your years here at Orange Grove Middle School.

Our parents and families are instrumental in making sure you are healthy, well balanced, and emotional and physically safe. Parents are partners and we encourage our families to get involved. Please feel free to stop by our office, email, or call. We would love to hear your ideas, get your feedback, and help in any way we can.

Orange Grove Middle School is a place where we Dream Big, Work Hard, and Celebrate Success and we do it all by working together!

Warmly.

David Nieto, Ed. D

Principal
