School Notes

  • Established in 1973 and located in Campbell, CA, Old Orchard is a private school offering Jr. Kindergarten through 8th Grade. At Old Orchard, students are the heart of a warm and supportive educational community in which they are encouraged to embrace a challenging and engaging academic program, and to immerse themselves in a wealth of visual arts, performing arts, and tech programs. Our program is accelerated, but never rushed. Our classes are small, giving our teachers the opportunity to consider the needs of each student every day and the time to keep in close contact with parents and school leaders. Students thrive in our program and typically work a year ahead of grade level in core academic subjects. When they graduate, the great majority continue on at one of the Bay Area's many competitive college prep high schools.
