My child currently in the 2nd grade and will be retained next year.My child is not the only one I can speak for a majority of 2nd graders will be retain for reading scores low.I feel that reflects how the school is teaching the children.In January they had to eliminate science and social studies to concentrate on the reading scores. My son was AB honor roll .I am waiting for the school doors to close.This is a failing school do not enroll your child here.
I just happen to be the parent of one the teachers who chose her first year of teaching at Orion. In my opinion, it was an excellent choice. She feels she has been challenged to use all of what she has been taught. I volunteer once a week to help her iwith her kindergarten class of 20 children. The children are wonderful 'little people'. I would also like to say hats off to those staff members I have met. Everyone is very helpful and kind and last but certainly not least, my hat goes off to the principal who I beleive has grasp a challange that is not too hard for her to challange. Great Job Orion Academy!
My children have attended this school for several years now. Most of the teachers here are fabulous and I respect them greatly for the wonderful effort that they put into teaching, but there are a handful that I wonder what in the world possesed them to become a teacher. There are minimal, if any ramifications for bullying, intimidation, and fighting.
My children started at Orion probaly around 2nd Quarter, the teachers and staff are very polite and they care about our children as if they were there own, you don't see that much, the school my kids came from they're grades were awful, not even in Orion a quarter and they improved so much, my daughter had a wonderful teacher Miss. Page she brought her a long way, were she was on honor roll 3rd & 4th quarter, I would recommend Orion Acedemy to anyone I really enjoyed my children's time there, and I am glad they'll be attending again next school year.
