Origins High School is a district public school that prepares students for success in college by building on strengths and being attentive to individual needs. We make it a priority to know students and families well through our advisory program. Our inquiry-based curriculum asks students to develop questions, conduct research, and prepare in-depth projects that exhibit their learning. Origins’ challenging liberal arts education is grounded in small group work, reading analysis, and an emphasis on writing. Students present portfolios of work to panels of teachers and community members twice a year and as a graduation requirement. At Origins, we graduate students that are active, confident learners and problem-solvers. Follow on TwitterInstagram, and/or Facebook for further updates.

Dear Origins Family,
We are very excited to welcome students back into the building for in-person learning!

All students doing in-person learning are expected to be at school between 8-8:20am. Also, students doing in-person learning should bring with them:

  • A laptop
  • Personal headphones
  • A bottle of water
  • Hand sanitizer
  • COVID testing consent form
  • 2 masks (one to wear and one as a backup)
  • Daily health screening form

We will be following all health and safety protocols that were in place in the fall, including wearing masks at all times and maintaining 6 feet of social distance. We feel very confident that learning in the building will feel safe and we trust all members of our community to help keep each other safe and healthy.

All my best and see you soon,
Ms. Kammerman
