The Orchard School Ratings & Reviews

August 08, 2018 Submitted by a parent
Overall good. The pluses are having a fantastic facility/campus where kids are frequently outdoors, generally dedicated and high quality teachers, and a very safe, sheltered environment. The negatives are the very high cost of tuition (almost $20K) that goes up every year at a rate higher than inflation, and weak leadership. The board seemed entranced by the progressive bona fides of the last head of school, and he turned out to be a poor administrator and fundraiser. The new head of school is just starting, although based on her educational philosophy she is on the extreme left in terms of politics and buys into the intersectional brand of identity politics, which is a huge turnoff. It seems a fair number of families have decided to leave in the last couple of years, which primarily appears to be a combination of the high cost and dissatisfaction with the leadership of the school.So overall the academic/environment experience has been good and would be hard to replicate elsewhere - but it comes at a very steep price, and the political agenda of the leadership is definitely not mainstream, which is a concern going forward.Also, I don't think the racial/ethnic breakdown on this site is correct. The school is probably 75% white, not the 99% shown here.

I am the proud parent of an Orchard alum - now a freshman in hs - and a soon to be middle schooler. We are in our 9th year at the school, and we are extremely happy with our experiences with Orchard. Our two kids are very different learners, very different personalities but we have been impressed that the educators there have found ways to work with both of them, figuring out what makes them tick and how to motivate them, and encouraging them to explore their potential. They have learned (and are still learning) to be thoughtful communicators, both verbally and in writing. They have gained necessary knowledge and skills to express complex ideas and advocate for themselves. They have learned a lot about who they are, their part in the broader world, and their responsibility to take care of it, as well as others. They are not afraid to fail (though neither likes not being right to be sure!!!) because they have been able to come back stronger when something didn't go their way, or work out they way they planned. I have witnessed they become more resilient.When it comes to academics, both of my kids have been given the chance to stretch, and have been able to go deep in subjects like math and social studies where they have strong ability.

I have had three children at Orchard and been a parent in the school for 14 years. I know that my children are better because of the education they have received at Orchard. They love the natural world, they take chances, they use their voices to speak up and to advocate for themselves and others. My oldest is now in High School where he is doing very well. The environment, the education and the experiences are worth the money at Orchard.

The Orchard School is a very special place led by an extraordinary group of teachers, faculty, staff and parent community who all understand and embody the importance of child-centered academic excellence in everything they do. We feel grateful to be a part of such a warm and loving place for our children to learn and thrive and become confident, kind, global-minded citizens. We love it and encourage anyone who has high expectations for their children's education to take a tour.

All three of our children attended The Orchard School. We are very pleased with the education they received and so are they. I've often tried to sift through all our years and determine what they most learned/received at Orchard and if I had to pick one attribute (and there are many), I'd pick confidence. They are all confident public speakers. For example, when my daughter was a junior in high school, she won an award that required her to speak at a dinner with over 400 people present. I tried several times to get her to practice and review her speech in advance, knowing that the previous recipient had a professional speech writer. In frustration, one evening she said, "Mom, I went to Orchard. Don't worry." She delivered a flawless speech without notes.They are all confident about their ability to learn. Orchard likes to say they help create life long learners and they do. Each of our children knows how to learn and they like to learn.They are all confident expressing themselves to anyone. In high school, their teachers observed that unlike many shy teens they were not afraid to ask questions and advocate for themselves or for others. And, this has continued throughout their college and post-graduate years. Orchard invites and teaches children how to respectfully approach adults.At Orchard education is not just about science, English, history, etc. While these are important, it's also about helping develop good people and preparing them for the future.
