    Moved here a few years ago because school next to house we bought seemed great. The test scores have dropped two years in a row. The number of ESL students has increased all since they started busing in more kids from outside the neighborhood. I moved out here to get away from this wish I could afford to move again or put my kids in private school. Now I'm seeing some of the neighborhood parents pulling kids from school and sending them elsewhere making it even more of a problem. If I wanted my kid to go to a worse school I could have bought a cheaper house in a worse neighborhood and paid less property tax.

    I can not be happier with this school. My daughter started here in Kindergarten and it has been incredible from day 1. The teachers principal and all of the staff right down to the lunch ladies and caretakers are so friendly and really care about the kids. I have also been very impressed with the way the classrooms are structured giving individualized attention to the children no matter what their learning capabilities - I have seen that children who have a harder time learning get the attention they need with proper supports in place as well as providing enough stimulation for kids who grasp things easily so they don't get bored. The teachers are a great combination of being friendly and lovable but also firm with high expectations for behaviour. Also I have been very impressed with how disciplinary situations are handled. Bullying is addressed and dealt with appropriately. Also consequences fit the "crime" and neither too harsh nor too lenient. Very appropriate. I have yet to have a single complaint about this school. My daughter is thriving and she loves being at school. I'm very happy with the foundation in education that she is receiving!

    My fourth grade son who is moving on to fifth had a two teacher class here at Old Orchard. He received a below average final report card and I was wondering if any other parent at OO had a similar experience. Thank you for any constructive opinions.

    Fabulous School! The Pricipal leads a fantastic group of teachers who are all dedicated to the children. We moved here from out of state and were welcome with open arms. My eldest is dyslexic and the staff has gone above and beyond to address her needs. The academics are first rate but each child is treated with respect and encouraged to reach their full potential as humans. I could not be happier as a parent and the PTSA is amazing!

    This is a wonderful school nestled in a suburban area. Parental involvement is high affording lots of extra special touches and the principal Mrs. Gauthier is kind and sweet and knows all the kids by name! She even gives hugs.

    Old Orchard is an amazing school. We love our principal and staff. Mrs. Gauthier the principal is so great. We are very happy! There is a great emphasis on character and citizenship as well as safety wisdom and academics. A keeper.

    We have two children our son graduated from 6th grade last year and our daughter is in 5th at Old Orchard Elementary. We could not be happier with the experience. Mrs. Gauthier the principal is a superb administrator. She will know your child by first name. (It helps that Old Orchard is a smaller school.) She is really warm & involved with the kids but tough when she needs to be. She sets a good tone for the staff. The music and extracurricular activities are 2nd to none. Parental involvement is high esp. compared to other areas. Friends we have who have lived here and all over the country say their experience with Newhall School District is the best they've had. The school was remodeled with a new MPR with new library new computer room play equipment. This is one nice school located in a pleasant neighborhood and surrounding park.

    We are only going into the fourth week of school but so far I am absolutely thrilled with this school! My son went into 2nd grade this year new to this school terrified to change schools. He comes home every day ecstatic and loving it. From computer classes music classes mad minute math library and all else filling his day he is excited and loving learning! I applaud the Principal and the staff for their dedication.
