Wonderful, caring teachers with an emphasis on the whole child. I love that teachers are concerned with life skills and self esteem in addition to academics. Doesn't much matter if my preschooler can say his abc's if he isn't able to express himself or feel confident in his classroom. My son loves school and that says it all.
This school is amazing! The teachers have taught my 5 year old to love school again! (she had a bad experience in her previous school) She loves school so much now I am worried that she might be sad to be home for Summer vacation!
I was very surprised to read the previous review. The teachers at Orchard are top notch and are as considerate of diversity as any I've seen. Great school! We are hoping to stay all the way through, but the price tag may prove to be prohibitive especially since we live in a god public school district.
Not sure how you can all be so happy? Orchard teachers don't seem to have much of anything in the area of training, talent or ability to work with diverse groups. Sure the kids are all super great, but wow, not worth the money! I can go up the street to MSDWT and get serious talent for my kids!
Wow! I am amazed at Orchard's ability on students that went there. I can tell that people are excited about learning there. I don't know what would happen if ORchard was not around. BRAVO
I have my two children in elementary school at Orchard. The learning environment is outstanding, the teachers are very involved and approachable and the kids love every minute of it.
We had 2 children attend Orchard for 3/4, 4/5 and K. Great learning program and the teachers really care about the kids. Best school program we have seen! Highly recommend it if you can afford it.
Orchard is an incredible school. Your children will receive a well-rounded education. Spanish is started in preschool. Physical education is given 3-5 times per week (depending on the grade level). Children at Orchard are excited about learning and enjoy being at school. The support system is second to none. Without question best school in the state (grades 1-8).
