Orr Academy High School

From The Principal: Shanele Andrews

I would like to say thank you to the Orr community for this great opportunity to be your leader, and it is with abundant joy and humility that I come to Orr Academy High School and embrace the Spartan student body. As we continue on our path of academic success and demonstrate higher order thinking skills, it is also important that our students remain active in after-school programs and extracurricular activities. These are essential undertakings that aid in developing our students behavioral patterns and soft skills. Students and staff respecting one another is a key ingredient to student achievement and success. One-on-one coaching and advising can have a tremendous effect on student performance. These are only a small number of useful tools that are available to heighten learning. It is my sincere desire and objective to use all of the available academic resources that will make our students superior learners and better citizens in all communities. Again, thank you very much for welcoming me and I look forward to serving the Orr Academy High School community.
