Ortega Museum Magnet partners with area museums to provide hands-on, minds-on learning experiences for students to examine their world, explore their strengths and exhibit their knowledge.
Family type atmosphere where the entire staff nurtures each child's development. I love that fact that everyone at school knows who my child is, what grade he is in, and what class he is in. You just can't get that in a large school.

I appreciate that my son is using the world as a classroom. Through museum learning expeditions and outreach programs, he gets exposure to the cultural resources of the city. Creating exhibitions allows him to practice 21st century skills, like cooperation and problem solving
-Mark Cross, parent
We love Ortega because of its warm and family-oriented environment. The fact that it encourages parents to be involved in the day-to-day learning experience is wonderful. I can easily share my time and talents in support of the faculty, staff and students whenever my schedule permits.
