    Parents Love Orchard!

    Click the video and learn why Orchard parents love The Orchard School!

    "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--
