    My child has had a wonderful experience at Oak Ridge. The teachers really care about the students' progress. Her teacher this year is very focused on reading skills. She attends French class once a week and has gym class every day.

    My son attends this school and he absolutely loves it! His teacher is very compassionate towards students. As well as a highly professional educator. The staff is also excellent. I recommend this school district to parents who truly value their child's educational needs.

    I wasn't very happy when my children went to this school the kids are not friendly and tends to cast away other children who are new and have a different color. I was reallly saddened by my children's experience during their stay in that school that is why we have decided to transfer our kids to other school.

    I love this school! My son is now entering 3rd grade. He is doing well. The homework differs from teacher to teacher and grade to grade but is tolerable.

    Good quality of academic programs. It is a complete school has all needed activities for ages of students. Parent involvement is less than expected.

    My daughter went to this school and after 5th grade still is not able to read or write. They pile on homework as busy work and don't work on the things that really matter. The faculty doesn't even want parents in the building because they will see that nothing is going the way it should.
