    This is our first year at this school and we are very pleased with Orange Elementary. The facilities are modern and well maintained. The administration and staff have been very welcoming and helpful as well as responsive to parent concerns.

    Orange Elementary is a small town school and I am thrilled that it is! My son walks in each day and is greeted by the staff including the Principal and Vice Principal and they know his name. They know him personally know his academic achievements and are always encouraging. The school offers wonderful opportunities to the children including up to date technology such as IPads and computers in the classrooms. Their academic standards are high and have met most if not all of their objectives in years past (also bypassing most of the other elementary schools adjoining counties). The PTO offers so many great family activities for parents to get involved there are field trips with very little monetary requirements from parents and when I leave my son there I know he is safe. The school practices drills to keep the children prepared in case of any emergency they may face. There is also a zero tolerance of bullying. I can't say enough about this school. I am sure my son will succeed here and it's because of the care concern and dedication of the entire faculty. He truly has advocates that are looking out for his best interests...what more could a parent want for their child???

    After some horrible experiences with public schools in other parts of the country it becomes very clear just how great OES is. The curriculum is great-and I think that OES really focuses on bringing out the most in every child and are willing to take them as far as they can go. While there is always room for improvement I give 5 stars because I have witnessed teaches and faculty striving to do the most they can for each student.
