School Summary

Located in a wooded Springfield neighborhood, Orange Hunt Elementary opened its doors in September of 1974. The school was renovated in 1998 and approximately 800 students are currently enrolled. In 1994, a partial German Immersion program was established at Orange Hunt. Approximately 300 children currently participate in this program in grades one through six. The partial German immersion program gives students the opportunity to gain a command of the German language while being taught math, science, and health during the regular school day.

The Orange Hunt school community embraces the philosophy of building partnerships among the faculty, students, and families to create an enriching and academically rigorous learning environment which supports the success of all our children. We incorporate the school's mascot -the Owl - into our School Motto setting the tone for Orange Hunt's culture and commitment to teaching and learning...
