Orchard School


Located on the sloping hill of a former apple orchard, the nationally acclaimed Orchard School embodies both the comfort of nurturing care and the promise of new opportunities. Approximately one hundred fifty-five students in grades K to 9 attend the Orchard School year-round; 83 students are referred to our Residential Treatment Program by their local school districts or departments of social services and 70 are referred to be Day Students by their local school districts. Residential and Day students are educated together in the school program. All of us at ANDRUS are proud that the Orchard School has been nationally recognized by being designated a Blue Ribbon School three times by the U.S. Department of Education, and accreditation and affiliations have earned the Orchard School numerous credentials and awards.
