School Notes

  • OFS was founded in 1999 in the Moorestown Community House. When that space was outgrown Orchard Friends moved to the original school for Sacred Heart Parish in Riverton, NJ. We serve children who learn differently and spend too much time and effort overcoming struggles of being in a typical classroom and not enough time learning.
