I am a student at oriole park elementary, it's a great experience for me to make friends and to make a good education. I think this school should rate 10 because the teachers are friendly and helps you learn great. The specials teacher means gym, computer lab, art, music and library, they are very friendly and they help you with stuff that you need to learn. The principal is very nice to kids and there's a big front office. They have parent involvement for parents stay in touch to know how their kid is doing. They also have a MEAP test, that means that students have to take a reading, math or writing quiz [writing quiz is in 4th grade]. They also have break times or should I call it recess at 10;45 am, lunch break is at 12;05 I think that's a decent time for students to have lunch and the other recess is at 2;00. I think that's a very good education for students to learn.

This school is a blue ribbon school of Kindergarten through fourth grade. Students keep their teacher for two years in a row to develop more of a rapport. Curriculum is also based on a two year cycle that allows the student to concentrate on the subject with greater results. All of the grades work together in many of the areas of school work in order to accelerate the younger children's learning and give the older children a nurturing experience and to develop social skills. This school's MEAP scores were excellent and the teacher to child ratio is great! My first grader's class has a total of twenty-one children including herself. The teachers are very communicative with parents and use logical standards of discipline. I recommend this school to anyone moving to the area and to those who are looking for a school of choice. This school is comparable, if not better, than the charter school my children previously attended.

After researching many private and public schools, I chose our neighborhood school, Oriole Park Elementary for my three children. The multi-age grade structure at Oriole Park fosters empathy and teamwork, as well as some customized learning opportunities for students excelling or struggling in certain academic areas. I feel comfortable taking any concern to teachers or the principal at Oriole Park. While my opinion is just one vote so to speak, Oriole Park's educators listen and are open to my suggestions for improvements. Their recent Blue Ribbon Exemplary School Award from the Michigan Department of Education is an honor the staff and students well deserve for their creativity, intelligence, and sense of community.

I had three children attend Oriole Park and each have had a great education. The teachers are fantastic. They are a 'Blue Ribbon' school in 2007 and have taught the kids much more than academics. We would highly recommend this school.
