The mission of Orchard Ridge Elementary School is to enable all students to become respectful citizens and life-long learners by providing learning opportunities that meet their individual needs.
Orchard Ridge Elementary School is committed to student learning. Grounded in practices of collaboration and collective inquiry, all members of our school community work independently to achieve common goals. All students, staff and parents regardless of race, culture, gender, sexual orientation or socioeconomic status will feel connected to the school community and committed to its direction. We will continuously examine our beliefs, attitudes and practices to ensure they are in alignment with the vision we have for our school.
Orchard Ridge Elementary School (O.R.E.) is located on the southwest side of Madison, at the corner of South Whitney Way and Russett Road. O.R.E. shares the building with Toki Middle School and uses the rooms and grounds on the building's east side.
Our school has around 275 children. Approximately 57% are from families with limited resources. We have a diverse population with many different races and ethnic groups in our school, which makes learning at our school a representation of the real world.
