After School Programs to Develop the Full Potential of Students

Our students not only have a strong academic experience, but also have opportunities to participate in our curricular enhancement programs. These programs include fine arts, performing arts, and athletics. We believe that these experiences are critical to the development of the full potential of our students.

Athletic Program

The mission of our athletic program is to offer student-athletes, through participation in competitive athletics, an opportunity to experience meaningful growth, accomplishment, and success. As an Orr Spartan student-athlete you are a positive role model within our school and the community at large. As a student-athlete at our school, your sportsmanship goals should include:

  • Maintaining at least a C+ in all classes, attend school daily, and exhibit positive behavior;
  • Respecting the rules of the games, the officials who administer the rules, and their decisions;
  • Respecting our opponents as fellow student-athletes,
  • Refraining from engaging in all types of disrespectful behavior
  • Looking at athletic participation as a potentially beneficial learning experience, whether you win or lose;
  • Educating other students and fans to understand the rules of the game, and the value of sportsmanship.
