Oakridge School provides a nurturing environment that offers students many unique leadership opportunities. The school offers engaging material for students at all levels, and has a multitude of extracurricular to build well-rounded students.

The best educational value for our children. Truly, a college prep school, not just a private school. Oakridge is special among private schools in the Dallas Fort Worth area, partially because of its racial, gender and social diversity of the student body and faculty. But one of the most important distinguishing factors for us is that Oakridge tracks the progress of its students in post graduation college performance and adjusts its curriculum to address future student needs.

Most of the teachers seem to lack social skills and or qualification. It is not a good way to spend $22,000. An unrealistic amount of homework is given, especially with all the extracurricular activities that most students have. Try to avoid sending your child here.

Steadily going down hill. They will let anyone in now, so don't worry about getting in. Zero transparency and they do not care what you think as a parent. Very far behind with technology and science. Spend your hard earned money elsewhere than the headmaster's pockets. He's highly overpaid. The board has many members whose children no longer attend or did not even graduate from there…..but it's misleading. Tells you all you need to know.

Oakridge has some of the very best teachers in the world. As anywhere, there are a few that are lacking in comparison but very few.

It is important for students to learn balance and they work on that. My child had an issue in 7th grade and the administration was quick to act and help.

Our students learn to have balance with rigorous academics and athletic / extra curricular activities. The arts are phenomenal. I wish we were more competitive in sports but for serious athletes they have a great showcase for their talents.

The Honor Code is a guiding force for all students in MS and US. Cheating and problems occur but the students know they are going to be help accountable and we parents (for the most part :)) support it.

The Owl Families is a program that focuses on the caring nature of the school.
