Dear OSSD Community,

We hope that your spring vacation is going well.  We wanted to share more good news about the Orange Southwest School District.  A short while ago, our High School joined our middle school and Braintree Elementary by being recognized in the national rankings.  RUHS (grades 9-12) is ranked as the 13th highest performing high school in the state of Vermont.  We are also ranked above 77% of the approximately 23,500 public high schools in the United States.

I want to personally thank our leadership team and all the staff that have contributed their hard work to making this possible for our students.

“Randolph Union High School earned high National and metro-area rankings in 2024 Best High Schools, which U.S. News released yesterday. Here is your school’s updated U.S. News profile page, with details about its rankings:”

Most Sincerely,

Layne W. Millington

OSSD Superintendent

RU Students in front of Machu Picchu


On February 13, 11 Randolph Union students and three chaperones embarked on a nine-day service learning trip to Cusco, Peru.  After 26 hours of travel—by bus, airplane, and car—students and chaperones arrived in Cusco, one of the South American nation’s most populous cities, high in the Andes Mountains. They were greeted by local Ubelong team leader, Martina Käser. That organization was responsible for organizing student homestays and coordinating day-to-day activities.  During the trip, the students and chaperones lived with host families in Tambillo, completed service learning in a local community center, visited the Sacred Valley, and toured Machu Picchu. 

RUHS Bowling Team

The RUHS varsity bowling team just finished a season for the record books. The Galloping Ghosts finished the regular season undefeated winning the inaugural central division championship. The success didn’t stop there for the Ghosts. They looked to continue their winning ways as they headed to the team bowling state championship. The Ghosts made it all the way to the finals where they finished off the season in emphatic fashion with a dominant 4-0 win in a best of 7 series against South Burlington. This win brought home the Ghosts first team bowling state championship in program history!
