Welcome to Orange Avenue School!

Grades PK-5

It is with excitement that I continue my work as the principal of Orange Avenue School.  I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition that has produced so many outstanding students.

This year we continue to improve upon these rich traditions to provide quality education that promotes the development of students academically, socially and emotionally. With a team of dedicated teachers and support staff, Orange Avenue seeks to challenge students in order to increase learning outcomes both within and beyond the classroom. We welcome all learners with open arms and work hard to produce an inclusive positive learning environment that understands that students come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences, yet all students are capable of finding success in the classroom. 

My door is always open and I welcome your input.  Please feel free to stop in, call or email me to discuss any concerns, suggestions, or ideas to help make this the best year yet!

Remember here at Orange Avenue we have pride in ourselves, each other and the school!

Joe Apicella, Principal
