District Wide Broadcast Message


Welcome to Orchard School District

As one of the oldest teaching institutions in California, Orchard began as a school for settlers in 1862. With over a century and a half of academic history, we continue to educate today's young minds in becoming tomorrow's leaders.

As you visit the pages on this site, we hope to share our culture of excellence and commitment through our faculty, parents and staff. And we hope you agree that Orchard continues to create an environment that nurtures personal and academic achievement one student at a time.
