I think the more interesting perspective comes from the students and parents who have experienced first hand the social, academic, sports, and full range of daily pieces of a scholastic experience in an Orinda school. That can show some insight as to why a child might thrive in this environment - from the parental support, to the wide range of electives, to the strong counseling and other services offerred to the "complete" child. I would be happy to put you in touch with people that can provide you with that "insider" view of the schools here in Orinda.
I am an Orinda Realtor and a former Orinda math and science middle school teacher. My son, Tyson Krumholz, has just been elected to the Orinda Union School Board.
Obviously, I know the schools very well. I taught in the Orinda Schools for over 11 years, was appointed to the Califfornia State Math Textbook Selection Committee, 5 of our children completed 12 years of school in the Orinda Schools and we have grand children who have graduated from and younger ones who are attending and the Orinda Schools.
Please contact me if youi need more information.
