We have switched schools many times. This is our first school in Colorado. I have never had so many issues with a school. Everyday when I drop my kids off at school, I wonder which child the principal is going to call me about that day.

Orchard Avenue Elementary is a great school with caring, energetic and motivating teachers. The leadership group and parents association offers many opportunities for families to get involved. Mrs. Alvarez is a great teacher for my fifth grade student. We love the way she cares for our child and pushes her to learn.

Years ago Orchard was a great school, but a change in staff and this school has gone downhill very quickly. The ladies in the office are snotty and very rude, not only to the parents, but the children as well. They are constantly coming up with fubdraisers, but yet the school shows zero benefits from them. The teachers are ok, but have the children so stressed about receiving high test scores that my child was literally ill from worry. I was not impressed with Orchard and the blue ribbon they received years ago is just that, in the past.

This school is one of the best school in the valley and it shows by their leader the principal. Denise Hoctor!! She and the teachers go out there way to make sure every kid has a fighting chance to learn.
