My son attended OES for K-2nd grade. He was in the GT program and as a result of his abilities, he was targeted by a group of kids in his class and picked on constantly. We brought this issue up numerous times to the teachers and administrators with no results. I followed up in writing, with no response. Only when my son began having seizures and acting out by having tantrums did they start contacting us about our child being a "problem". We withdrew him from the school and the administrators begged us for another chance - they would move students to other classes, they would work with us, please don't homeschool, etc. It was too little, too late. We homeschooled our son and sent our other child to a private kindergarten. We will not send either of them back ot this school. My son's 2nd grade teacher ended up quitting and is homeschooling ALL of her own children now - which should tell you something about the school system. Terrible experience.

My son attends Orange Elementary and I am just really thrilled with the level of education he is receiving there. The teachers are excellent and the administrative staff (including the Principal and Asst Principal) take special care to know each and every child that attends the school. They offer programs for children at all academic levels and provide many extracurricular activities for all grades. It is a safe and secure school and I am pleased with the procedures they have in place to keep it that way. It is a wonderful school in a small town and I believe it has been beneficial for my son this far.

This is our first year at this school and we are very pleased with Orange Elementary. The facilities are modern and well maintained. The administration and staff have been very welcoming and helpful, as well as responsive to parent concerns.

After some horrible experiences with public schools in other parts of the country, it becomes very clear just how great OES is. The curriculum is great-and I think that OES really focuses on bringing out the most in every child, and are willing to take them as far as they can go. While there is always room for improvement, I give 5 stars because I have witnessed teaches and faculty striving to do the most they can for each student.
