Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

Customized curriculum and now streamed classes from Abeka Academy using state-of-the art computers. Orchard Hills has come a long way in the last few years ironing out some of it's problems and improving. Small class sizes, supervised classes with both committed Christian parents and certified teachers, a hot lunch program, gym, busing, and competitive prices. Visit our website or come see our school to see what we have to offer.

Orchard Hills is not typical of your "normal" schools (ie: public elem schools) If you want class sizes of 27+ and the focus to be getting high scores on the PSSA's since thats all the local schools seems to teach for anymore - then no this is not the school for you or your child - if however you are interested in a quality, personalized, private christian based education with the focus being on the learning needs of each individual student then I would highly recommend OH. I personally dont feel that structure is a problem at all, is the atmosphere a little more relaxed then most? Yes, but I myself feel I would rather have my child in this type of atmosphere being able to be a child than in any of the local public schools.

Orchard Hills currently features state of the art computer equipment, internet with filtering, and has a new website. See it at www.ohcacademy.com. It has some problems with structure due to the custom curriculum because not all kids are working on the same thing at the same time. All schools have correction issues but it is how they are dealt with that counts.

There is a lack of classroom structure and correction. The school is still in the stone ages of technology.

Orchard Hills offers small class sizes, custom curriculum, public school busing, and Christian education. It is a great place to send your kids. I had one graduate from there and one attend for three years.
