Principal's Message



Scholars (Students), we are excited to teach you to learn and grow this school year! We will continue to help you develop a growth mindset to become better problem solvers and critical thinkers! I believe in you and challenge all of you to believe in yourself too!


Parents, we will build on Ory’s past successes while increasing our faculty and staff’s capacity to help your children make progress in a positive learning environment. Our purpose is to serve your child through teaching and learning – period! Parents, you are encouraged to remain actively involved in your child's education. You play an essential role in building your child’s growth mindset. A growth mindset is a belief that skills and talents can be developed and are not fixed. Specific student and parent responsibilities are included on the school contract.


This year, I invite you to welcome our new assistant principal, Mr. Robert Schaff, our new counselor Ms. Tai Cambre, new faculty and staff, and of course all of our new scholars joining us this year to the Ory Family! We all have a part to play! We cannot do it alone. We need all of our student scholars, parents/families, and stakeholders to help our children to grow into the leaders, achievers, individuals, visionaries, and excellent scholars we believe they can become! Working together, we rise as Eagles do and soar toward a very successful and rewarding school year!


Best regards,



Monica Brown
