Principal Renee MacKay with some Orchard Dale students.


Orchard Dale is a fantastic community of students, parents, and staff committed to education through collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking. Orchard Dale is a place where students develop strong academic skills and become responsible, caring citizens ready to take on the world. We have high expectations of all of our students to be and do their best everyday. Our Wildcats are always ready to ROAR!

Opening the Door

At the East Whittier City School District, we are preparing our students to be 21st Century citizens by teaching them five essential skills: Communication, Collaboration, Creativity, Critical thinking and Community. These skills will open the door to our students' future education, careers and other important areas of their lives.
