The mission of Orchard Elementary School is to create a safe and supportive environment that emphasizes self-esteem and the mastery of academic and life skills to help students become life-long learners. Goals include cultivating each child’s intellectual capabilities, their awareness of moral, cultural and human values, as well as multicultural differences and being environmentally responsible. It is a strongly held belief by the Orchard School community that teaching and learning are the responsibilities of students, staff, and parents working collaboratively.
