Oak Ridge High School Reviews
I went to Oak Ridge for four years, and all I can say is I wasn't too impressed. I never had a problem with the teachers, but it is true when people say that the lunch portions are rather small than my current school. The academics at Oak Ridge are average, as there really aren't any advanced courses and no AP courses. The only advanced course they offer is mathematics, but many schools participate in that. The biggest conflict I've ever had in Oak Ridge is the nonstop bullying, and from what I've heard from my friends over here, it's gotten worse. When I was over there I was called gay when I was absolutely straight, and now I hear the truly LGBTQ+ students are being bullied worse than I have. Even though my years here were awful, it is different for some. Some people tend to like the small, private school environment in a public school, but it wasn't good for me.
The school tries, all the time. But, I feel that they turn a blind eye because some members of the staff just don't want to deal with the issues at hand, until it becomes a huge problem. They also don't want to spend the money on certain things that I, as a student, feel they should; for example, turning all of our security cameras on all the time. The school is 'safe' if nothing is happening, but let their be a disagreement between students that goes to far and then you may have a fist fight in the parking lot before school even starts.
Our school nurse and faculty take the students' safety at our school very seriously. Over the past year, we have installed a locking system on our doors, we practice drills for tornados, fires, earthquakes, and intruders. The school nurse always keeps us updated on viruses whenever they start appearing and is always sending out letters to parents and students.
