    i think it can be better as far as motivating the children more they need more rewards to make them want to try harder and reward them with something they can look at and make them want to get more of and make them want to succeed.

    I love ORRS because it is the place where my son has gone to school since age 4. The best teachers and staff roam the hallways. From the music teacher who coaches each grade into a wonderful performance to the gym teacher who the kids follow like the Pied Pipper. We have families that voluteer and give to those who otherwise wouldn't get anything. Our school has heart.

    We love ORRS!! this will be our last year here and will miss it tremendously. The teachers and staff treat us parents like family. I have been a school volunteedr for going on 5 years here and love every minute of it. I have made great friends that can help with math if I need them to. Everyone looks out for each other and helps each other when they can. The kids are happy and the staff is happy . we love it at ORRS

    My son is in Kindegarten and I am extremely happy with the staff at Orrs. It's obvious that everyone is working towards the same goal of educating our children. I really do feel like they care about our kids and their education.
