It is our intent to provide the best educational program for our families. In mathematics and language arts, in science and history, and in the visual and performing arts, our staff has developed a challenging and creative curriculum to stimulate thinking and develop academic skills.

Ortega Elementary School has a long history of community involvement and service founded on a close alliance with our students’ families. Our academic excellence and spirited programs are the result of families and staff working together: gardening projects, performing arts and art productions, thematic units, and community outreach. Our goal is to increase all student achievement with emphasis on literacy and mathematics. We find the resources to accomplish our goals with the strength of our Parent Teacher Organization and innovative faculty.

Please join our school community to make this another outstanding year for nurturing our children.
