I graduated from OR in 2014 and received a well above average education. This school offers great academics along with a solid teaching staff. Overall it is a well organized school that puts academics first, however there is little room for cultural expansion due to the lack of diversity. This often times creating a student body that has some ignorance when progressing onto adulthood which is disappointing. The town and school is inside a small bubble, some cultural integration would be fantastic along with its already well defined academics, yet the suburbs rarely due have a mix of races anyway so expecting the schools in the area to have any diversity is probably unrealistic. Very good sports programs as well at this school, top notch with all the money floating around for extracurriculars!

Oak Ridge High is a place to explore your interests as a growing teenager, and exists to help you become the best version of yourself! With 75 unique clubs and counting, our school offers a wide variety of organizations to grow your passions. In sports including cheer-leading and football, we have some of the most skilled athletes in the state on our campus. Cheers to OR!
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.
