This school is amazing. Great, caring teachers who are focused on curricular challenges, yet they individualize education as much as possible. Lots of great communication between parents and teachers. The new principal is very involved in school activities and seems to love every second of her job. We relocating for a job, and I hate to leave this school. It's a great one!

Oak Ridge Elementary does a wonderful job integrating students from differing cultures and socio-economic strata. It is a challange that staff and volunteers meet with enthusiasm and good will.

My children went to Oakridge for most of their elementary school life.I can't imagine any school could be better. The teachers are unbelieveable, they really fall in Love with every student. They give parents a true feeling of confidence that their children are getting the best possible edjucation. We Love you Lisa Hannan(principle),Kris Bailey(Phycoligest),and Amy Land (special ed).If anyone is looking for the best schools, this school is the best of the best!!
