Orr ES is a welcoming place with concerned, helpful teachers, administrators and parents. All of them look out for each other and try to meet the needs of each individual student.

Continued from the previous post: As for the homework, my 5 year old gets so much that I hardly have enough time to help him with all of it.

Orr has potential but it is failing. The leadership is poor, it is frustrating teaching in an open classroom setting and there are few consequences for students poor behavior. The bathrooms are unclean and students in the neighborhood loiter around the school in the evenings. Teachers are not supported!
