We are proud to be Orin C. Smith Cougars

Our team-oriented staff works closely with students and parents to create a school climate where each student may develop self-esteem while fulfilling his or her academic potential.

The core academic curriculum (reading, writing, communication, math, science, and social studies) is taught by the homeroom teacher. Music, physical education, typing and library are taught by specialists. In the fifth grade, beginning band, choir and orchestra are taught on a daily basis.

Social skills, reinforced daily by our entire staff.
