Orchard Elementary is a fantastic school with a great staff and community. We moved to the area 3 years ago and I am so grateful to have had both of my children here. Debbie in the front office is extremely helpful and nice. My youngest daughter has loved each of the four teachers she has had and the community is supportive. I only wish more parents were involved in PTA but the Parent Club is still amazing.

I was a student teacher at Orchard. Orchard is a great school with quite a bit of parent involvement. This was the first year of music and the music teacher organized a musical that was fantastic.

Orchard is a great school - good teachers, very good training. I just wish they had more sports activities. And also, a friendlier office staff would be greatly appreciated.

Our children have attended Orchard School for six years. We have been extremely pleased with the administration and the teachers. They have conducted themselves in a professtional manner and are a friendly, caring staff. Our children have been academically challenged without being overwhelmed. We have become friends with many of the students and parents. We enjoy attending PTA sponsored activities. We highly recommend Orchard Elementary School.

My children have attended 3 different elementary schools with our moves. Although all these schools were great, I have been most impressed with Orchard. The administrator's commitment to the students and their families is sincere. I see teachers who spend many hours and their own funds to give children the best educational experience possible. As a parent I feel welcome at the school, beginning with the helpful and cheerful office staff. My children are having a positive educational and social experience. I wouldn't want to my children to attend any other school.

My daughter has attended Orchard since Kindergarden and she is now in 3rd grade. I also worked as a yard duty there for a time. My daughter and I have never had any problems with any of the teachers or staff. My daughter has loved all of her teachers and the staff. They are so friendly up in the office any time I have had to pick up my daughter they have always been very helpful. I have nothing but positive comments about Orchard!!! From a Parent of a child who attends Orchard
