As a graduate of Orangefield and a parent of 2 boys at Orangefield I highly recommend this school. The teachers and staff are wonderful and want the best for your children. They offer a variety of sports for children of all ages, from a personal experience, it was a great place to grow up and still is. I am beyond excited to get to pass on the Bobcat Pride to my boys...We bleed Orange!

My three daughters go to Orangefield Elem. We have been going to this school since my daughter started Kindergarten in 2004. We love our school. The staff is wonderful and their full of Bobcat Pride. All of the teachers are excellent. There is a great deal of opportunities for sports, little dribblers, cheerleading for all ages, football for all ages, volleyball for older kids, tennis etc. Orangefield Elementary School is the Best!

I have been very impressed with the curriculum the children are learning and the music and physical education that they are being exposed to. The teachers are extraordinary and the staff is more than willing to answer any questions I may have at any time.
