    My daughter attends Oak Ridge. It is the perfect size school large enough to offer lots of resources but small enough for kids to know most of the kids in their classes. Most of the teachers love what they do and take personal interest in my daughters education to make sure she is reaching her potential. The principal is responsive.

    It used to be a K-8 school until last year the elementary portion was moved to Eco Hills. Great new middle school! Staff and kids are friendly. We moved from out of state and being a minority my son enjoyed the school very much!
