Principal Message

  • Hello Eagle Family!  I wanted to introduce myself as your next principal.  My name is Dr. Ed Boswell and I have been a principal for ten years in another school district.  I am so very honored and humbled to be a part of such a rich tradition that Orland Junior High School has. Our goal will be to continue what has been amazing for our students, families, and staff, while looking at what we can enrich for our learning community.

    My family and I live in Channahon.  My wife is a school administrator and we have one daughter who is going into 6th grade.  I grew up in Blue Island and coming out to Orland Park as a kid was an excellent experience for me. 
    We have several new staff members this year and also a new assistant principal, Mrs. Lauren Bushwaller. Lauren has been with the Orland School District for ten years. 
    One of the common words or themes you are going to hear this year is the word "GRIT."  When people have grit, they work hard to achieve a goal and know that at times they will struggle, but the end result they will reap the benefits and rewards.  We want to encourage our students to be the best version of themselves and to work hard and take pride that they are an Eagle!  Please reach out to me at any time as I stand ready to serve as best as I can.  Thank you. 
    Yours In Education,
    Dr. Edward A. Boswell
