Principal's Message


We have much to be proud of at Orange Grove.  From the rigor in our classrooms to the Ocelot Pride on our fields and courts, we have maintained our Tradition of Success for over 50 years.  The faculty, staff, and administration provide our students with a high-engaging and well-rounded education that is complemented by our unwavering commitment to student achievement.


As we maintain the traditions of Orange Grove, I want to encourage our Ocelot parents and families to be our partners in the educational lives of our students.  The middle school experience continues to set the stage for success in high school and college, and we must work together to ensure that our children lead healthy and productive lives.


The developmental uniqueness of each student is important to all of us.  As we care for each other, learn from one another and continue to grow together as a team, we are sure to Dream Big, Work Hard and Celebrate Success each and every day.


We live in an ever-changing and challenging world.  During the 2018-2019 school year, I call upon all of our scholars to RISE: to every occasion, to every challenge and above expectations.  It is when WE RISE that we do more, help more and achieve more.


Ocelot Scholars:  You have an entire school community here to guide and support you.  Hold yourselves to high academic, behavioral and personal standards.  I am honored to be your principal and privileged to support another outstanding year of learning.


With Ocelot Pride,

Maria-Elena Navarro, Principal
