Oakhaven High School in my opinion is one of the great schools that Memphis has to offer. This past school year Oakhaven High met all the EOC set scores for all of the EOC tested subjects.

I attended Oakhaven last year and I believe that it has improved so much from were it used to be 3 years ago, some teachers employment needs to be terminated but, overall its a very good school. Oakhaven needs alot of changinq but its still a very competive and academic achieving school. Im proud to say I attended Oakhven and pleased to broadcast the great improvements Of my school

I think Oakhaven High overall is a good school,it need a few fine tuning but this id minor compared to what it use to be.There is some areas I would like to see a Big change in.The new principal is doing just fine.He is concern and you can talk to him.We the parents must give him our support and [ take any concerns or problems to him.Go principal Brewer GO.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Tennessee used the Gateway/End-of-Course (EOC) exams to test high school students in language arts, math, science, and social studies upon completion of relevant courses. Students must pass the algebra I, English II, and biology I tests, called the Gateway exams, in order to graduate. The Gateway/EOC exams are standards-based tests that measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Tennessee. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
