Oak Ridge School District Reviews

The Oak Ridge School District is an amazing one. All the teachers are super helpful and genuinely care about their students and their well being. Oak Ridge High School offers many opportunities that students might not ever get at other high schools, such as a chance to teach preschoolers, or work in their engineering program, or shadow doctors at the local hospitals. The diversity of the school is incredible due to the Oak Ridge National Lab where scientists all over the world come to work.
Review Oak Ridge School District
My experience in the Oak Ridge School system has provided me the tools I need to be successful in life after high school. With a stellar education and a diverse population, I was able to challenge myself daily with rigorous academic courses and meet many new people who are completely different from me. I feel confident going into college due to the Oak Ridge School System. One thing I would like to see change is the support for others sports and activities outside of football and men's basketball.
I have two daughters who attended Oak Ridge schools from Kindergarten on. My older daughter, who is currently a sophomore in college, and many of her friends said the academic transition from high school to college was not difficult because they were well prepared. My younger daughter is a senior at Oak Ridge High this year. With both of my children, the teachers have gone the extra mile in providing extra academic support and in writing reference letters, proofreading college admissions essays, etc.
