OPES school image

Orchard Park Elementary opened its doors for the first time in the Fall of 2001. We are located in one of the fastest growing counties in South Carolina, a few miles south of Charlotte, North Carolina. We are part of the highly ranked Fort Mill School District. We regularly experience the challenges and excitement of an ever-expanding school and school system. Despite this growth, we are very fortunate to be able to maintain an adequate pupil/teacher ratio.

Orchard Park opened with approximately 400 students, but has the ability to hold 900 students at full capacity. Orchard Park's certified staff includes: 

* Classroom teachers 
* Special education teachers 
* Gifted and Talented teachers 
* Reading & Math Specialists
* Reading Recovery Teacher

* Full time related arts teachers for art, guidance, the media center, music, physical education, and technology 
* Principal and Assistant Principal
 

Non-certified staff includes:

* Instructional assistants, including a technology assistant, three office support staff employees, a nurse, and a complete cafeteria staff.
