We have the freedom to offer whatever works for each individual student and have found that it’s easier than you think! We consistently unlock secrets that enhance our environment and our students’ experience in school. We continue to learn new ways to teach, new ways to learn from each other, new ways to present, new ways to think.
We are a team – students, teachers, parents, community. Our mission is to lead by example toward positive educational change – along this path we are moving forward rapidly.
Our school is a lab – discovering how to create an environment where students can strive for and reach their potential. Our lab teaches us daily – about the natural progression of one’s education, about the essential value of autonomy, and about authentic learning.
We recognize that there are an infinite number of learning styles; therefore, infinite approaches to learning should be available. We recognize the route to a thriving, capable learner is through independence, creativity and limitless approaches.
Orsch students attend school each day within an authentic, productive student community. Problems are solved and peer relationships are genuine. Each student feels a true sense of self and is respected for his or her individuality.
