First grade student gives a thumbs-up on a field trip to Montalvo Arts Center.

We believe that students should graduate from Old Orchard eager to continue learning and open to every subject, from math and science to literature and Spanish. Our program is accelerated, but students are not rushed. Our small classes allow students’ individual talents to blossom: Teachers are able to carefully consider the needs of each student every day and, with specialty teachers and support staff, they have time to keep in close touch with parents and school leaders. As a result, our students are eager to learn and do their best every day and they are able to work well ahead of grade level in the core math, language arts and science curricula.
