Orchard Elementary School 1

This school ranks 4987 of 5222 California schools for a reason. They are understaffed creating an unsafe environment for students. My son has to LEAVE his class room 30 min /day so they they can help the NON native english speakers with their english while my son wastes time learning about flags in some other random class. The office staff (besides Patty who is nice) are miserable self important jerks. The parents show up at 3:35 pm to get their kids in pajamas w holes and appear unshowered. Just trash. Check their API and test scores. This place is a fast track to your kids future McDonalds career...if they survive the sad lack of supervision, staff apathy...and stay out of prison.

This school gave my kids a first-class education, but has had a harder time in recent years as funds have been cut for special programs. I especially appreciated the dedicated teachers.
