Oak Ridge School District Reviews

10 reviews
All Categories
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.
Review Oak Ridge School District
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.
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.
