Oakridge is an outstanding Middle School both Academically and in Athletics. The Principal is actively inolved in all aspects of the school and very approachable as are the tachers. The school offers a wide variety of activities and opportunities for the kids and parents to get involved. The two years my son was there were very enjoyable.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 South Carolina used the Palmetto Assessment of State Standards (PASS) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in Writing, English/Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science. The PASS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of South Carolina. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
