Communities served Moreland Hills, Pepper Pike, Woodmere, Hunting Valley, and Orange.

Orange High School is a public high school located in Pepper Pike, Ohio, an eastern suburb in the Greater Cleveland metropolitan area and part of the Northeast Ohio region. Orange High School primarily serves the affluent communities that historically formed Orange Township, which are Hunting Valley, Moreland Hills, Pepper Pike, Orange and Woodmere. OHS is the only high school in the Orange City School District, which also includes Ballard Brady Middle School, and Moreland Hills Elementary School.


In 1924 the Orange Schools were consolidated from the individually operated Orange Township public schools. That year, the Foreman family donated the first 10 acres (40,000 m2) of property to ultimately comprise a 172-acre (0.70 km2) school district campus and the first Orange Schools building was opened on the current site of the high school. This facility was expanded numerous times to accommodate the growth of the five cities, Pepper Pike, Hunting Valley, Woodmere, Orange, and Moreland Hills, formerly comprising Orange Township.[2]

In 1973, the current Orange High School's contemporary structure was expanded upon, built around and opened on the site of the original school building.
