About Olentangy Orange
The school logo combines double “Os” signifying OOHS with the school’s mascot, the Pioneer. The Pioneer within the logo is a bold figure that represents strength and looking toward the future. It also incorporates the school’s colors of blue and orange throughout.
Olentangy Orange High and Middle schools were named in honor of the “old” Orange School. The Orange School was located on the northeast corner of the South Old State Road and Orange Road intersections and was founded in 1916.
The Orange School was one of four schools located in the Olentangy area prior to the district’s consolidation in approximately 1952 into the Olentangy Schools as we know it today. Those four schools were Powell (1911), Hyatts (1914), Berlin (1915) and Orange (1916). Many graduates from the Orange School still reside within our community.
Olentangy takes tremendous pride in the area’s history and in these four schools. The naming of Olentangy Orange High School (OOHS) is the district’s third building to be named directly after one of the four original schools.
OOHS bears the school colors of orange and blue. Blue is the district’s common color that is shared and unites all of Olentangy’s schools. The school’s orange color was matched to the same school color from the Orange School. The OOHS mascot is the Pioneers.
