I love orchard! You will not be disappointed at this school. Debbie and Tami in the front office will take care of you and your child. My daughter attended orchard for 4 years and every year was an awesome experience for her. Mrs. Shaffer( funny teacher with lots of energy to teach). Mr. Aguilar( very efficient and caring). Mrs. Peterson is no longer the principal but I have to say, she rocks!

I want to say thank you to Mrs. Nichols, Mrs. Shaffer, and Mr. Aguilar. My daughter had a fantastic experience with these three teachers. The music teacher was an awesome lady as well. My favorite people are Debbie and Tami. If you ever needed any help with anything these women were always there. Amazing ladies in the front office.!Mrs Peterson was sorely missed as the principal. What an amazing person!

We've been part of the Orchard family since August of 2013 and we've had nothing but great experiences here. All of the teachers and staff really care about the students and want them to succeed. They've also made an effort to get to know our family and greet all of my children by name, even the two that are not yet students. My son has made progress each year that he has been enrolled here and he has truly blossomed this year, thanks to the efforts of his teacher. I will have three children in Orchard next school year and I can only hope for more of the same.

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 grandchildren go to Orchard, and so far they Like it and seem to be adjusting quite well. Their mother likes the school and says it is above some other schools in Modesto.
