Welcome to Orchard Elementary School

At Orchard, we believe that collaboration key because WE are better together. We are teaching our students to believe in themselves, do their best, persevere, and achieve their goals. As a staff WE are ALL invested in the success and achievement of ALL students.

Children whose parents are involved in their child’s education perform better in school. We would like to extend an invitation to you to become an active partner in our school and work together to ensure your child has a successful experience at Orchard!

Orchard Elementary is a place where we want all our students to find happiness and success. We provide a safe and caring environment where staff and students work together on our goal to meet the needs of your child and focus on your child's academic, behavioral and social success in becoming college and career-ready for the world.

At Orchard, we are Upstanders and Upstanders "Stand Up for Everyone!" We are also owls that SOAR every day. Please feel free to contact our principal, Angela Quinteros, if you have any questions or would like more information about our school.
