Orchard Park Academy Opens

Orchard Park Academy, the first new school in Westminster Public Schools in more than a decade opened on time and on budget for the 2021-22 school year and students, parents, teachers and community members couldn’t be happier.

The home of the Pumas opened its doors on Monday, August 16 for a community-wide celebration and then it was on to teaching and learning the following day with the first day of classes on August 17. Superintendent Pam Swanson showed up bright and early to welcome families to the school that replaces nearby Skyline Vista which is mostly demolished. 

What’s Up WPS cameras were there for the ribbon-cutting ceremony and the first day of school.

We also toured Skyline Vista one last time with a local family who wanted to say goodbye to a building that played a big role in their lives.
