Orenda Elementary School Reviews
A wonderful experience
My two children attended Orenda Elementary School. When our first child entered Orenda we were cautious not knowing how he would do in such a large district. We now know first hand that the district goes to great lengths to keep the elementary classrooms smaller so that children have resources to grow in those critical developmental years. Orenda is unique in that many of its teachers teach summer camps targeted to elementary age children that continue the learning experience in a very different way than what is experienced in the classroom. Orenda's Principal encourages parental involvement which has set Orenda apart from other schools in the district. The PTA sponsored programs and donations to the school have provided for opportunities that otherwise would not be available through the district. Orenda is public education at its best.
