this school is a throw back to the 1950's, i'm moving my kids out of this school, next year
Best school ever! I'm now in middle school still missing Orrenmaa like crazy! Wish i can go back in time! :( Miss my best best best friend Kaine, lLouis, Reyna, and luciana. Never forgot about this school... I miss my dance team there and especially Ms.Jamie! Miss you all! Just wish i can see you guys one more time!
My daughter is now in 5th grade and been here since 1st. The teachers are very well educated and very discipline with our children. PTA is very awesome and are always there for our children. Allot of after school activities where parents and children can join in and have fun besides just being in school. The school is safe and is well gated. If you want to judge the school by its STAR testing please dont for the teachers are willing to teach and be there for our kids. I am a proud parent of Orrenmaa Elementry student.
My son graduated last year and my daughter is in 2nd grade currently. We have had a wonderful experiance with the school. Mrs. Johnson makes it her business to know each of the supporting parents as well as the children. Everyon shows respect to her which she has earned. The Watch D.O.G.S is a great add on where Dad's Of Great Students can be apart of their children's daily routine and experiance the joy of being around thier teacher and other class mates. Hats off to the PTA staff for making this an experiance to remember when they support he teachers and outings.
This school just keep on getting better. Safe environment , hands on accessible principal and wonderful support services for students.
I have been very pleased with the education my children received at Orrenmaa. I truly believe the teachers strive to customize to the children's learning needs. I'm happy with the special education and resource. The principal is accessible, caring and strict on school guidelines. I love the fact that our children have activities before and afterschool. For example; the running club, and half-time were the learn and have fun at the same time.
The principal is awesome, as are all the special education staff! The SDC classes, RSP classes, and speech are among the best I've ever seen and the children learn and move back into general education. This is what special education should be!
My son attended from k-3rd grade then we moved out of state. This school has great teachers and a wonderful principal.Principal is always there always interacting with student and parents. I would like to say that my son got a wonderful education the time he attended
The teachers at orrenmaa are great, they do care about the students. The kindergarden program is great. My son is in kindergarden and he has learned many things.
School run by good principal, interacts with children and parents. Supports students and teachers. Good envirmont for all. The love of music by the staff is shared with the kids through learning program and after school choir.
Great school, excellent programs, pta, fundraising. Excellent teachers, staff and principal. Many motivated activities and functions are put together. Principal and teachers easy to find or talk with.
Well rounded school. Nice facility. Informative and pleasant enviroment.
The education I received at Orrenmaa was above and beyond what many of my friends and colleagues seemed to have received at their elementary schools. I am about to graduate from Humboldt State University with honors, and I know that this wouldn't have been possible without the foundation I received from Orrenmaa.
