HistoryEdit

In 1924 the Orange Schools were consolidated from the individually operated Orange Township public schools. That year, the Foreman family donated the first 10 acres (40,000 m2) of property to ultimately comprise a 172-acre (0.70 km2) school district campus and the first Orange Schools building was opened on the current site of the high school. This facility was expanded numerous times to accommodate the growth of the five cities, Pepper Pike, Hunting Valley, Woodmere, Orange, and Moreland Hills, formerly comprising Orange Township.[3]

In 1973, the current Orange High School's contemporary structure was expanded upon, built around and opened on the site of the original school building.
