    Head of School for The Day

    Thoughts from Cameron Todd, Orchard's Head of School for The Day:
    "Mr. Rosenbluth is a great head master. He runs the school very well. All the teachers are very kind. They are also really smart. All the kids get a lot of freedom. Orchard has a secret room called the dungeon. It has a lot of cool stuff. I mean all kinds of stuff. But my favorite part about Orchard is all of the friendships everyone has with each other."

    "My son went to Orchard years ago and loved it. The foundation he got there carried him through the rest of his school experiences, which include a PhD from Purdue, just granted in August. His field is Quantitative Analysis, and the strong math program at Orchard I know contributed to his interest in this field. It is a wonderful school."
    --A Former Orchard Parent--
