Fabulous school! Because we moved out of the zone we were only able to send my son for 3 years. They ability grouped the children so more individualized attention was possible. Mrs. Bell is phenomenal. What she does for the children and their families is incredible. I honestly think she lives there. She is just that dedicated.

I went to school there my siblings went there & now my son goes there. We've never had serious problems & when we have they've been taken care of promptly and with discretion. I adore Mrs. Bell (School Principal) and their teachers are awesome.
i have had children in there for 3 years!! This is the best school ever!!!
My child has been in the Orange River School for 4 years. She had the same teacher in 2nd & 3rd grade. This teacher has worked very hard with all her students. Now my child is in the 4th grade & has been accepted in the Gifted Class. I give alot of credit to the 2nd &3rd grade teacher. Of course you can't depend on the teacher only. The parents need to do their share too. Work with the child's homework with them. Push the child & give encouragement. I am proud of my child at Orange River School.
