Grace Trahan-Rodecap shares how The Orchard School fosters the love of learning
The school’s high-quality experience begins with an exceptional early childhood program. This program, which enrolls children at the age of 3, offers a safe, engaging and stimulating environment. Focus is placed on the cognitive, emotional, social and physical development of young children. Talented and passionate early childhood educators continually design and refine their program. They set challenging, achievable and age-appropriate developmental goals for each student.
Many educators are calling 3-D printing a revolutionary innovative technology that can introduce new learning and understanding methods. Orchard has not one but four 3-D printers. The process used to print objects helps with all facets of STEM-science, technology, engineering and math. This unit of study gets students excited about learning, and is just one example of Orchard’s outstanding program.
The school’s 42.9 acres serve as an outdoor classroom. Students tap trees in our woods to make maple syrup. Children also bury bottles of water in the snow to learn about insulation!
