That is an interesting statement by ex-principal Tom Daniels below, too bad it is not true, maybe he should have really listened to us kids. Hopefully the new principal will because I am tried of being afraid to go to school and the horrible things people say and do to me. I am sick of being bullied and no one helping. I want to not hate school :( A current student

Our son is a graduate of Oakridge School. He went onto a private boarding school. As parents we were nervous about the transition from a public school to a private school . We believe our son was well prepared by the Oakridge Teaching staff and administrators to acclimate to the change. He has excelled in academics and athletics. We feel his educational foundation provided by the Oakridge faculty has enabled him to adjust and thrive in this new learning environment. Currently he is in all honors classes and an honor roll student! Thank you Oakridge for providing and supporting his desire to learn and explore!

So far very impressed. Just moved here from Conn, and our son is from Thailand. He has been treated very well by all, teachers responsive as is the office, and Principal. I managed largest apartment community in Hartford, and this school is well managed by its Principal, and the cleanliness rating is PRISTINE... KEEP IT UP OAKRIDGE.

I encourage all parents of Oakridge students to stay involved in your children's schooling and activities. There are bully issues, the lunch time is over crowded and having joined my children for lunch I can say with complete honesty that one teacher per grade (100+ students) is not enough. 2 Teachers pre grade at recess is not enough. Lets work together to make this school better. As it stands now, it makes me uncomfortable having my children go there. Bullying is an important issue for everyone, everywhere-lets end the cycle!

Like most public schools, there is always room for improvements. That being said, I can say with complete confidence that the Teachers at Oakridge are top rate and being trained in the latest curriculum. Oakridge currently uses 'Everyday Math' and a 'Responsive Classroom' method. They are in the process of converting all the grades over to these two types of learning - and I know I've really seen great things coming out of my elementary school student at Oakridge. The school is locked down during the day with the exception to the front door which is directly next to the administration and secretaries. I have more then once been stopped in the hall when I've forgotten to grab a badge (but signed in) and asked to go get a visitor badge. There have recently been some bullying issues going on, but I believe this is an issue Statewide.

Hello, Oak Ridge school is a very wonderful school. Oak Ridge is not crowded, as some other people think. Also the attendance is taken, and i would know because i am a student(Hailey) and i always hear my name being called for the attendance. The lunchroom at my school is rather good(except for their hotdogs). But all in all Oak Ridge and Sandwich is Awesome!

If your seeking 'SNOBVILLE' you'll find it here. Most children here are over indulged and disrepectful and parents care more about keeping up with the jones than teaching morals. Teachers are overly concerned with things they shouldn't be and less concerned with things they should. The school is way over crowded and 8 grades are expected to move through 1 lunch room in a day. The programs such as gym, music and art are so packed with children that attendance isn't even taken as it would take all day. Taxes are outrageous in Sandwich. One has to wonder where all the money goes.
