Upper School

Upper School Students laughing

Old Orchard Upper School's students are growing and changing fast. Upper School students become young adults who are independent, confident, and prepared to transition to high school. Students are able to take risks, try new things, and make mistakes because of the support that they receive from teachers and staff. They learn to self-advocate and become leaders on our campus. Building on what they have learned at the Lower School, students learn how to be good students: how to stay organized, ask thoughtful questions, and be prepared for the challenges and excitement that each day brings. Due to our small class sizes, students develop personal connections with their teachers and other middle school staff. They are able to take on social and academic challenges because they are in a supportive, encouraging environment.
