• Community Projects and service learning are major components of our program here at Ortiz. We strive to teach students the importance of being involved in their community in a positive way, and the impact they can make on the world around them. Our vision is to graduate internationally-minded students who recognize their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, and as such, help create a better and more peaceful world.
    Every year, Ortiz students are encouraged to participate in community service. Click on the links to view some of our most recent projects.

    MYP Community Project

    MYP projects provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned in MYP. In MYP year 3 (8th grade), all students must complete the community project. This project encourages students to explore their right and responsibility to implement service as an action in the community. Students may complete the community project individually or in small groups.
