School Reviews

  • Recommended May 12, 2014 - This school is amazing. Students learn it love learning. Since I am a student I would know what it would be like in a students place, and it is truly one of the best thing ps a student could ask for. As of the 2013-2014 school year I am in the 7th grade and unfourtuntly have to begin to look for a new school, Orchard is so amazing and I''m hoping they build a high school onto the current area (possibly over the track??? ;) I don''t like running). I''m a naturally born bad speller by the way for the spelling mistake above. - Posted by Student/Alumni
