Orchard Park High School serves approximately 1600 students in grades 9-12. The school, led by the high school principal, is organized into three houses or units of approximately 530 students in grades 9-12. Each unit is headed by a house principal with two counselors, one secretary, one attendance aide, and approximately 43 teachers. The students within each house are assigned to a core of grade level homerooms. In turn, each homeroom is assigned one of the guidance counselors located in the house office. Homerooms are kept intact throughout the student's high school career. This aspect of the house plan affords the student and family a common and continuous contact with the school through the house principal, guidance counselor, and the homeroom teacher. Students are assigned to a counselor for all four years.
House I consists of the Art, Business, Music, Special Education, Technology and Physical Education/Health departments
House II consists of the Earth Science, Mathematics and Social Studies departments.
House III consists of the Biology, Chemistry, English, Physics and Foreign Language departments.
