Old Orchard offers an engaging and challenging academic program at every grade level. We ask a lot of our students and we provide them with the support, encouragement and personal attention they need to arrive at school eager to do their best every day. Our students generally work about a year ahead of grade level in their core subjects and the majority of our graduates begin their high school careers in honors and advanced classes.
In our youngest grades, classroom teachers are supported by aides; this ensures that each student receives our full attention every day. Students who need a little extra attention during lessons receive it - whether they need help mastering a new concept, or something a bit more challenging to keep them engaged. In older grades, students are taught by subject specialists in math, science, language arts and history - teachers who are passionate about their subjects an convey their enthusiasm easily to students. Older students also have an activity period built into their daily schedule which allows them to get a jump on homework, or to meet with teachers for extra help.
