Oak Ridge High School Reviews

Overall, I generally enjoy going to school at Oak Ridge. We have an amazing athletics program supplied with several resources such as great coaches, equipment, a weight room facility, and more. Although I do see a lot of stress and overwork among other athletes as well. One thing I would to change is how we put too much pressure on our athletes as well as give other sports more credit on their success and root for them. I also really enjoy most of my teachers. I am grateful to have teachers that support me and are available to answer any questions that I may have. One thing I would like to be changed is the school dances and spirit days. There are still clubs and other activities to look forward too which is great because there are a wide variety of clubs on campus for everyone!
Review Oak Ridge High School
Oak Ridge High School is the third high school I've attended so far. Compared to the other schools I've been to, it's quite a good school. There's many clubs and electives to choose from. Oak Ridge is a very big school with a very large student population. All my teachers have been very good people, but not all were good at teaching. However, they are all willing to help out students with their personal and academic problems. Generally, students are very nice, welcoming, ambitious, intelligent, and open-minded. Though it's not very common, there are some kids who will verbally discriminate others because of their sexuality, race, political views, and etc.
I think that something this school could work on is the visitor sign in requirements because I think that, right now, it would be pretty easy for an unwanted visitor to come onto campus. I do feel safe at my school because of the very high anti-buillying policy and the police car that is normally always at the very front of the school. I am also fortunate that I am close with my counselor so I know that she is always just an appointment or email away. I can truly say that I have never felt unsafe at my school except for two fluke incident my freshman and sophomore year (serious action was taken immediately)!
