Mrs. Grawe is an amazing teacher. I was a teacher, and I don't know how she does it. She is relavent, highly organized, differentiates instruction for each child, and truly cares. The school even says her class is the best behaved. Her students, including my son, adore her. I admire her greatly.
The teachers at Orchard Park are amazing. So far every one of my son's teachers has been organized, enthusiastic, and dedicated. The PTO works hard to raise money for various programs for the kids. The feeling at Orchard Park is one of community as well.
We have loved having our two children attend Orchard Park. Together they have had 6 teachers and all but one of them was great!! The classroom teachers as well as the 'specials' teachers are very caring and have helped our children realize their potential. It is a smaller school which is wonderful and it has a very active and supportive PTO.
My daughter will be moving on to 1st Grade this Year. I cannot tell you how please I was with our Kindergarten experience. I also want to point out how instrumental Miss Forlines has been to our love of this school.
My son has gone to kindergarten and 1st grade here and we are very happy. He's had two excellent teachers, they've got good activities and programs and my son is really doing well. He's brought home some really great things from art class! He also like music and gym. The school has completed a remodel now and it's a great facility.
