The assessment calculations are not based on elementary school districts, but rather on lot square footage, building square footage, and a host of other elements within the home (e.g. to give you an example of the level of detail, a double vanity sink is counted differently than a single, because of the additional plumbing fixture involved). The Tax Assessor's office can give you a list of all the items that go into the analysis. You may be looking at properties that happen to be on a main road in a certain school district, which could have an impact on the taxes, or it could be one of the many other elements. In general, Orchard is taxed the same as Willard, Ridge, etc. If you have any questions about the comparison between specific homes, I'm happy to try to explain the tax difference.
