    My two children attended Orlo and nothing good came out of this school. The bullying is ridiculous!!! They finally got rid of the principle and hired a new one! I really hope she's better than the last!!!! The teachers here are mediocre! There has been literally 1 teacher who I can rave about...unfortunately for Orlo this teacher has transferred over to another elementary!

    We need a new principle to start off. The bullying needs to stop. The school needs to be more friendly environment for the children.

    Orlo Avenue is staffed by a highly dedicated group of teachers who always put the needs of their students first.
