Orchard Park Public School:

Ochard Park School, situated in the north of Niagara Falls, was built in 1958. The original building contained six classrooms and a Kindergarten room but the school community grew quite rapidly and in 1964 seven additional classrooms, a gymnasium, and a library were built. A brand new portable classroom was installed in the fall of 2000 and another in the fall of 2001. In 2010 the addition of a new administrative area, entrance and gymnasium as well as the renovation of the library has made Orchard Park a modern learning environment.

Today our school has an enrolment of 385 students organized into 15 homeroom classes encompassing ELP to Grade 8. We also have an Alternate Education program for Intermediate students.

Our teaching staff consists of 18 full time teachers, 1 learning resource teacher, 3 designated early childhood educators, a principal and vice principal, as well as a support staff of 2 secretaries, caretakers, 2 educational assistants, a child and youth care worker and 2 lunch supervisors. We are very proud of our team!

Our large playground area allows plenty of room for our students to be active. As well, teaching staff provides a very busy interschool and intramural sports program. We are proud of our extensive student volunteer programl. In addition to each classroom having at least one computer, our computer lab features 28 Pentium computers and scanner. The SMART boards within our building are very engaging. The school is fully networked for Internet and Intranet. We are pleased to be using funds from various sources to enhance the materials that are available to our students within the library.

Orchard Park’s committed School Council and dedicated Parent Fundraising Group work with staff to foster school curriculum initiatives and improvement projects.

Like all District School Board of Niagara schools Orchard Park is committed to personal growth, productive citizenship and lifelong learning for all. Our challenge is to provide opportunities for each child to learn, develop and reach his/her full potential in all facets of his/her learning. We have teachers involved in the DSBN Literacy and Numercay Initiatives, New Teacher Mentoring Program and many more individual professional development programs.
