I will be honest, I used to hate this school like every other kid. Then I started to realize that this school is one of the best ones I have seen. It has great faculty and teachers and they work hard to make sure Oak Ridge High School is the best it can be. We have great and healthy food options, plenty of sports and performing arts opportunities (and some of the best), a variety of clubs, and more! Our safety is always a primary concern as there have been multiple school shooting threats and our faculty have taken the time to reassure and protect our safety. I really do feel like my voice is heard at this school and that is what I love the most.

The first thing that a new student notices when walking on campus for the first time is how white and affluent Oak Ridge is. The teachers are absolutely amazing, although there are some exceptions. The administration is a mess, and the amount of support and resources they provide to student-run clubs is meager. Sports seem to be the focus at this school with academics and other extracurriculars taking a back seat.

The class offerings are frustrating due to the sheer number of students enrolled here, but most of the counselors are friendly and approachable. Lastly, Oak Ridge is not a supportive place academically. While half of the school does not care at all about academics or learning, the top fifty or sixty students of each class are cutthroat and are willing to cheat to maintain their class rank and get good grades. Most of these students do not care about learning; instead, they only focus on getting into a prestigious college and are willing to game the system to get there.
I loved my 4 years at Oak Ridge High School! Most of my teachers were incredible. They are truely passionate about their teaching and care about their students. I learned a lot both academically and socially while at Oak Ridge, and I will carry on all that I have learned to college and beyond.
