Orion High School Turns 10!
In the fall of 2006 Orion High School was conceptualized and the planning process began to open a digital high school - at the time, we called them virtual high school. Lots of things have changed in ten year, especially in the area of digital learning. One thing that has not changed at Orion, however, is our driving passion to be the high school that is different because we treat our learners as partners in their own education. The motto of Empowering Learning. Renewing Hope. is the motto that really explains our deeply held beliefs about teaching and learning. We believed back then, and we believe today, that if we empower people to take control of their own education, then there should be a renewed hope in what education could be. We introduce 2017 with the adoption of our 10th anniversary logo. What is is the same about our logo are our colors (navy blue and gold), along with what we call, "The Big O" - the graduation designation - the pinnacle of learner's education at our school - the graduation hat! Take a tour with us down memory lane.
This is the first part in what will be a series of articles dedicated to Orion's tenth year. Enjoy this part.
