Orchard Ridge Elementary School Reviews
Orchard Ridge is a neighborhood walking school, in a neighborhood that has a mix of low income and middle class families. I find the school does a good job managing the different students. Our experience is that the low income kids come to grade school less prepared than the middle income students, but the school manages this by arranging the students into small groups based on skill level. For example, kids that are reading at an advanced level get paired with other students at the same level.
While schools generally get rated based on test scores, I prefer to rate the teachers rather than the students. That is what I like most about ORE: quality skilled teachers that care. There is a strong sense of community.
