WHY MIDDLE SCHOOL?
We know the middle school years mark a significant time in a girl’s life. It is when she develops – physically, emotionally and intellectually – at a pace rivaled only by her first few years of life. We believe in the distinctive value of the middle school experience. Choosing to make 5-8 grade our exclusive focus, allows us to support and celebrate this exciting age. Our faculty possess subject area expertise and are middle school specialists. Through their implementation of a program designed to harness the potential of girls’, our students come to know their voice, talents, and abilities at a vitally important age.
FEMALE FORWARD
Research shows that girls’ confidence drops as much as 30% during the adolescent years. Not at Orchard House School, a leader in middle school education for girls. In a school designed just for them, girls move forward through the challenges of adolescence and emerge as confident, capable leaders prepared for high school and beyond.
