School Notes

  • Old Orchard is the small school that delivers a big education. We ask a lot of our students. Academic subjects are accelerated, but never rushed. We emphasize comprehension and critical thinking, asking our students to work toward thoughtful solutions to challenging questions. Digital, visual and performing arts programs offer balance, providing students with creative outlets that also strengthen their academic work. From Jr. Kindergarten through 8th Grade, our faculty and staff have the time to work closely with individual students, whether it be guiding them through tough math problems or coaching them through life lessons.
