A well-known private school was founded in 1929. Today the school Orme School is located in a quiet, tranquil and picturesque area, surrounded by beautiful views and ecologically clean nature. The founder of the Orme School was Charles Orme-Sr., whose dream was to create a strong, friendly, strong children's collective that would together reach academic, personal heights, developed emotionally and spiritually. The case was continued by Charles Orme, Jr., and today the school is considered to be one of the most prestigious and respected, and its graduates enter the selected US universities (100% successful completion rate):

  • University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA)
  • Arizona State University

  • University of Colorado
  • University of De-Pol

The three basic principles of education in the Orme School are:

  • Mastery
  • Tradition
  • Character.

Here, the free Arizona spirit, unity with nature, the wholeness and identity of each person is especially bright.

Love for the environment, preservation and enhancement of natural resources is one of the most striking features of local education. The extensive space around the campus provides students with complete freedom for recreation, sports, walks and picnics, in the fresh air lessons of biology and ecology, archeology, geological research are conducted, and in the evening and at night, when the sky is studded with stars, astronomical observations are conducted. Due to remoteness from major cities, light pollution is minimal, which provides excellent opportunities for observation.

Classes are formed small, up to 10 people in each. This is useful for students (it gives an opportunity for everyone to express themselves, to form a more cohesive team) and is valuable for teachers (allowing each child to pay maximum attention, more closely monitor his academic success and overall academic performance). Individual approach is another strength of Orme School.

For students who differ in special persistence and inclination towards this or that science, there are additional, more intensive courses of in-depth study of disciplines.

Here, mixed education is accepted - young men and girls attend common classes. Especially note the friendly, warm relations between teachers and students, who together are aimed at the full development of the potential and talents of each child.

Strong academic aspects are the Department of English (including the subject "English as a Foreign Language").
