Orchards Elementary became a Lighthouse school in the spring of 2013. What this means for our staff is that every student; regardless of academic or economic ability, is nurtured into being the best they can be and in charge of themselves. Our students are an extension of our own families. These kids are important to us and the future of our community.
What being a Lighthouse school means for our students is that they are in an environment where they feel safe and know they are welcome. Their voices are heard. Each student knows that the choices they make come with consequences. Good or bad but not judged.
