The school is great. The Principal really seems to take the time to get to know the parents and students. The teachers are wonderful. Only issue I have is with some of the parents and their aggressive driving at drop off and pick up. My son was nearly hit twice crossing at the cross walk by parents at the school and one flipped me off when called on it. So avoid some of the parents and watch your child at drop off and pick up really well.

The counselor at Orchard is great with helping new students transition here. Parent involvement is extremely high. There is diversity here because the University is close to the school.
