We are very proud of our kids middle school. The entire orchard hills school community is amazing. The school has strong leadership from a hands-on and dynamic principal, wonderful administrative staff and counselor and extremely dedicated teachers. I have several students at the school all with different interests and abilities and the school strives to help them thrive and find their individual element for success and personal growth and satisfaction.

Our experience at this school was a complete disappointment. We met with the principal prior to coming to the school & he was an excellent salesperson on the benefits of the school & why our daughter should attend. At the end of 3 years we found out that 1) the principal is an excellent salesperson, 2) the common core changes to math in California in 2013 dramatically affected 8th grade in 2013, allowing the schools to create their own methodology of teaching for common core, & left many kids w/the additional requirement of a supplemental math class for 9th grade in high school. At the end of 3 years at Orchard Hills, I was happy with the innocence of the social environment but greatly disappointed in the academics - specifically for a student that was an A/B student in 6th and 7th grade and worked hard for her grades in 8th grade and, at the end of 8th grade, left the school feeling "stupid" and "not able to measure up" while she was there. Although the principal stated "as long as I'm here, your son has a spot here", I would never consider this a place to send my second child. As the saying goes, "once bitten, twice shy." This is a truly a case of buyer beware.

I love this school because of all the super-nice and amazing teachers and staff. This is where everyone can or does achieve their personal best! The best part about this school is that there are people there to encourage you to do things that are part of you or tells you to try it. :)

For a school in its first year of existence, Orchard Hills School is simply AMAZING! Over 117 million dollars went into building this school and we are so fortunate to attend this state-of-the-art school! Teachers, administration, parents, and students all work together in building a world class learning environment!!
