Oak Ridge School District Reviews
I enjoyed my experience at Oak Ridge High School overall. I was involved in the chorus and cheerleading program all four years. The teachers are very involved with the students and care about student success, however I feel there needs to be more diverse class options. There is a required personal finance class and economics class, however I have noticed that myself and many of my peers still were not prepared for the real world. Most of my peers and myself included do not have a signature because we were not taught to write in cursive. We also did not know how to write letters to colleges or how to address them. These examples and many others such as how to cook basic meals, how to sew on a button, and other life skills that promote independence for students were not taught.
Oak Ridge was overall a privilege to attend. I made many memories that I will never forget. It was also the first school district in the nation to be completely STEM certified. Every student is required to complete a year long project called Major Author to graduate, which is honestly the only thing I could complain about. Even though after finishing, it makes you that much more prepared.
I moved to Oak Ridge my freshman year of high school. Ever since, I have loved every moment. The school staff and students make everyday enjoyable. If you are struggling in a class, there are many opportunities to receive help. Almost all of the teachers are willing to come before or after school in order to help you understand. One thing i would like to see change is the way issues within the school are handled. Especially dress code. They will send you home if you are unable to get a change of clothes, causing you to miss out on important class work. Overall, Oak Ridge Schools are amazing and i would recommend them to everyone.
