Orchard Gardens has been selected by the President’s Council on the Arts and Humanities to be part of the Turnaround Arts Initiative. The Turnaround Arts Initiative highlights eight schools around the country for their incorporation of the arts into their successful turnarounds. This recognition is a testament to the amazing arts team assembled at OGPS, and to the over 800 artists-in-residence that we have at Orchard Gardens. Our Turnaround Arts Initiative page can be found here. To read the President’s Council on the Arts press release, click here.
This is an amazing honor that will help our students to further their artistic talents with the resources of the White House behind them. World renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma and dancer Damian Woetzel are partnered with Orchard Gardens for the next two years to support arts instruction, integration, and opportunities.
