I felt proud of my education at Oak Ridge. We're one of the best in the area and most of the teachers (a certain geometry teacher is most definitely excluded) are extremely dedicated to their students. The AP history teachers are all amazing, and definitely prepared me for college more than anything else. The administration is alright--a little too strict. Because of this, I felt burnt out by junior year. Despite all of that, since starting college this year I've realized just how much Oak Ridge prepared me compared to other students in my freshman classes. Most of the things I've been learning so far in college I'd already been taught at Oak Ridge. I'm definitely proud of my Oak Ridge education. Once a wildcat, always a wildcat.

Great school! Lots of AP and dual enrollment classes. Students are generally friendly. Great chorus program! Plenty of after school activities to choose from. Teachers are friendly and helpful.
Oak Ridge High School is a school unlike any other. Not only do the teachers want to see their students succeed, but they celebrate the successes with the students. I have found this very important as I get ready to go to college because, reflecting back, my teachers are the people who have helped me become the best version of me possible. Freshman year I would never have thought that I could have experienced anything near to the amount of things I have accomplished and these experiences come from my teachers and the confidence they helped me build up in myself. Being a STEM certified school is nothing to look past either. The administration strives for excellence and makes it known that every person in the school should do so as well and be proud to strive for such excellence. Goals are made and met through Oak Ridge High School and I am proud to be able to have attended such an amazing school and school system.
