OHS RECEIVES NATIONAL RANKING
Every year U.S. News recognizing high schools across the country in their National Rankings. This year, Oakridge High School received the honor of earning a Bronze level badge. Rankings are determined through a variety of factors that best serve their students. Top-ranked schools succeed in three main areas: exceeding expectations on state proficiency tests, offering challenging coursework and graduating their students. The Best High Schools rankings, available exclusively on usnews.com, feature data on a number of factors, including enrollment, graduation rates, diversity, participation in free and reduced-price lunch programs and the results of state assessments, as well as Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate test data.

TRANSPORTATION

RESERVE YOUR SPACE FOR 2018/19
For the 2018/19 school year, we are introducing a reservation system for our school district. In an effort to better serve the families that utilize bus transportation to/from school and to create the most timely and efficient bus routes for the upcoming school year, we are creating this “reservation” system. It is important to know that this does not mean your student will have an assigned seat. He/she will simply have an assigned bus for the school year. It is important for students residing in the Oakridge Public Schools district to submit their “reservation” form no later than Friday, June 29, 2018. Please do not reserve a space on a bus unless your child plans to ride an Oakridge bus to/from school on a regular basis. Reserve your student’s space on an Oakridge School Bus for the 2018/19 School Year.
