Principal's Message

  • Welcome to Oak Ridge School! We are happy to have you join our community of students and lifelong learners. We hope our website provides you with a snapshot of our school, its policies, and its programs. 

    Oak Ridge School first opened its doors in September of 1959 with 12 classrooms and served students in kindergarten through eighth grade. The school has grown over the years to where it now serves over 700 children in grades second through fifth. 

    At Oak Ridge, we are continually striving to achieve greatness by providing outstanding educational programs that challenge our students and help them become the “best for the world.” Oak Ridge School provides myriad opportunities for all students to receive a well-balanced education. Each child in grades second through fifth participates in 30 minutes of PE everyday. We also have many extracurricular opportunities that promote social-well being such as student council, chorus, band, music club, art, technology and coding classes, and running clubs. Oak Ridge students also learn citizenship skills by giving back to our community.  These activities are just some of the things our students are participating in that are helping them become more caring, well-rounded and socially conscious citizens.

    As you can see, Oak Ridge is a school that offers opportunities for all its students. We’re proud of that. We hope you are too. It’s been a group effort — dedicated teachers, parents, staff and children — all working together as ambassadors of the district to make sure each and every child reaches his or her full potential. That is our vision. We hope you share that same vision.

    It’s Marvelous to Be a Mustang!
