My child graduated from this school and was very well prepared for college. Not only did she finish a college degree, but was very well prepared and qualified for a merit scholarship after one year. This was excellent preparation , given she was a learning disabled student who wasn't supposed to graduate high school and not qualify for college.
I sent my child to Orton Academy at first because it seemed like a peaceful environment for strong academics. To my surprise, this was not the case, in fact possibly the exact opposite. The environment of the school is a hostile one and the students are pushed in ways that are more hurtful and abusive than helpful and supportive. The example given to the students by the so-called 'leaders' of the school is a very poor one. I would not suggest this school for anyone.
I am very impressed with the quality of teachers. Orton offers a small classroom setting with an excellent curriculum.
