Oyster River Cooperative School District (ORCSD) is committed to academic excellence.
Faculty and staff work together to create a rigorous and progressive course of study. K-12 content and skills are developed collectively to ensure that they reflect contemporary conditions for life beyond Oyster River, for college and career readiness.
Our hope is to create learning experiences which excites our learners and ignites curiosity that develops life-long learning.
We work together to engage every learner.
ORCSD is a place where students, parents, staff and community members’ work together to foster a life-long passion for learning and engage all students in developing the skills and knowledge they need to further their education; participate as citizens, succeed in the work-place; live healthy lives; and, thrive in the 21st century.
In the ORCSD students, teachers and community members take pride in our schools and understand that each of us has a role to play in ensuring their success.
We create safe, stimulating learning environments where all students are challenged and excited by the opportunities to learn; where students and teachers alike feel it is safe to take creative risks; and where every member of our community is known and valued.
During their time at ORCSD students become strong, independent, critical thinkers with a commitment to living ethically and a belief that each of them can and should make a difference in our world.
Vision of a Graduate
Awareness of Self: ORCSD students will demonstrate resilience and adaptability as independent thinkers through being self-directed, self-regulated and self-advocates who understand themselves as learners.
Awareness of Others: ORCSD students will demonstrate ethical, empathetic, and respectful thinking through being collaborative, responsible community members both locally and globally.
Transferable Skills and Knowledge: ORCSD students will demonstrate a growth mindset and master transferable foundational skills and knowledge through critical thinking, effective communication, problem-solving and healthy risk taking.
