Orenda Elementary School Reviews

I've had the pleasure of having two of my children attend Orenda Elementary School. My eldest, who was diagnosed with Select Mutism prior to Kindergarten, flourished under the care of kindergarten teacher, Kim Smith. Prior to entering, Mrs. Smith and the psychologist met with me (on their own time!), making sure they were aware of the hurdles and my concerns. By November of 1st grade my daughter was reading essays in front of 250 people! I attribute a majority of her success to the safe environment Orenda put in place for her - especially noting her teachers, Mrs. Smith and Mr. Herrington. At the end of the day, all parents want their children to be happy. The entire facility is amazing. Smart, caring teachers in a community that is insanely family friendly. Clifton Park is an amazing place to raise children (as long as you don't mind the cold). I highly recommend Orenda to anyone moving to the area.

My two children went to Orenda. They really liked it and the teachers were great. My youngest couldn't read or do math as well as the other students, but her kindergarten, first, and seconde grade teachers got her back to speed.
