CONNECT WITH US
Thank you for your interest in The Orchard School. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us about any questions you might have. We are here for you, and look forward to connecting with you. Please email us at admissions@orchard.org and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

All of our students (Preschool - 8th Grade) are currently on campus here at Orchard. Throughout the summer we invested $200,000 to upgrade our facilities to create the most healthy indoor and outdoor environment possible for our students, faculty, and staff, including: 

  • New school-wide HVAC and air filtration systems to improve air quality and increase the sanitation of surfaces

  • Completed construction of THREE new natural playgrounds, complete with three covered outdoor amphitheaters with WiFi

  • Touchless faucets, toilets, urinals, hand sanitizers, and high-traffic door entries throughout the building
