Students and Parents:
 

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Orchard View High School!  Academically, we have some exciting opportunities.  In English and Science we offer Honors classes to qualified students that challenge students in higher level learning skills.  We have the benefit of being across the street from Muskegon Community College.  Because of our proximity, we have many students that take advantage of dual enrollment opportunities and graduate with a significant portion of their freshman year already completed!  We are also within walking distance of our Career Technical Center. OV has the highest percentage of students in the county taking advantage of their programs.  OVHS also has many after school opportunities for tutoring to help your son or daughter achieve greater success.

We have many exciting activities, clubs, and organizations offered to students.  Our chess club has about 20 students that meet formally and informally the entire year.  The Quiz Bowl team competes against other schools in trivia competitions.  The Robotics team builds robots and competes against other robotics clubs.  OV also features an Environmental Club and Be the Difference (our anti-bullying) Club.   The Sportsmen’s Club has ventured to Canada to fish and hunt, and is planning a trip to Alaska.

There are also plenty of informal opportunities for students to get involved in positive activities.  Homecoming is a very busy time of the year where students can be involved in building the float, organizing the parade, powder puff football game, bonfire, and the homecoming dance, to name a few.  Snowcoming is also a very busy time where students will spend several nights decorating class wings, building grocery cart floats, making banners and other activities that lead up to the exciting Snowcoming assembly and competition.

There are also many opportunities for parents to get involved as well.  Our staff is very welcoming and open to parents coming in to simply see what is going on, or helping out with various classroom activities.  We also encourage parents to assist with any of our clubs and organizations.  Please feel free to stop in anytime to talk about these opportunities.

Thank you for your time and again, welcome to OV!  Go Cardinals!
