NEW Orting Elementary School
Orting Primary School (OPS) was built in 1968. Hey Jude was the top song on the radio and gas cost was $.36 a gallon. Fifty-four years later, we have outgrown the building by far. With the addition in 1977, OPS was built to house 290 students. With 540 students in our current care, the lack of permanent space is felt in every aspect of our school.
In this bond, we aim to build a new K-5 Orting Elementary School. This new facility will be constructed on 65 acres the district acquired in 2022 which sits adjacent to Orting High School. We will create permanent classrooms for between 600-700 students. With a safer facility and lighter and brighter classrooms, we can ensure our learning spaces accommodate the type of technology, flexible use and collaboration that will set us up for future success.
