    The teachers at this school try their best. Unfortunatly there is not a great deal of parent involvement.

    Our son goes to Ord Terrace and he loves it there. Ms. Cole the Principal has come up with a great reward system for the students and is working hard to get them involved in their own education. Reading to your child is of the utmost importance. We love Ord Terrace.
