Orchards Elementary School
Orchards Elementary is a Leader in Me school, where each child discovers and develops his or her own unique gifts and talents and is given ample opportunities to lead. As leaders, students become active, engaged partners in their own education, allowing their self-confidence, responsibility, and initiative to grow. The children understand the benefits of different gifts and talents; they learn to listen to new ideas, work together to achieve results, and motivate one another to be their best selves. The environment at Orchards encourages students to be leaders in all aspects of the school day - they track their own learning data, participate in “changemaking” committees, and are involved in multiple areas of the school system, from morning announcements to lunchtime kitchen duty.
