Orchard Lake Middle School Reviews
OLMS offers a great learning environment. The teachers are committed to the students and it is demonstrated daily. Teachers take time to work with students before and after school. I am at the school 3 times a week to pick up my kids and I always witness teachers who go out of their way to offer support to a student. The curriculum and other activities will keep your child involved. The principal supports all of the students. I have been to many events ( home and away) many times late in the evening and she is there. Even with students who have graduated and gone on to High School. Some parents are not even that committed. The special programs offer your student many opportunities to learn and grow (even quiet or reserved students are engaged in some activity).
While searching for our home several years ago, we specifically searched in this district. We are fortunate to have both a beautiful neighborhood and a great school district. OLMS is a great choice.
