I have lived here all of my life and I love it! I would especially recommend Oak Ridge to any new families because Oak Ridge Elementary is an amazing school.

Rural neighborhoods in a country atmosphere within a half hour of the amenities and jobs of Greensboro. Great for families that enjoy the offerings of a city but not the city lifestyle.
There is good education. It is pretty quiet, but because it is small, things are a close drive by. There is access to some of the best schools in the county, and even in the state.
