Hello from all of us at Orchard Hills School!

At OHS our mission is to plan, implement, and evaluate rigorous and engaging tasks for students that are aligned across grades and levels within a restorative environment. Thus, all students will be more authentically engaged in collaborative learning that challenges their ability levels. They will develop a stronger understanding of academic and social practices necessary for college/career readiness. As a community we strive to ensure that our school will be a safe, orderly and caring place that supports and promotes student learning and positive relationships.

Our Pledge:  As OHS Eagles we care for others, we act responsibly, we show respect,
and we never settle for less than our best!

Thank you,  Dr. Cliff Dudley, Principal
