Learn from this district about:

Commitment to STEM learning: Oak Ridge is certified district-wide by Cognia. Cognia STEM certification provides Oak Ridge Schools with clear goals, and visible accomplishments to demonstrate our commitment to quality STEM learning in our schools.

AccessOR: Oak Ridge’s digital vision is to empower students with equitable access to digital learning opportunities to innovate, design, collaborate, and ultimately succeed in local and global communities of the future. During the pandemic, our 1:1 initiative was able to achieve 100% devices and broadband access, including issuing MiFi devices to families without.

Student-centered beliefs learning: Oak Ridge believes students should be given a voice and a choice. Students should be challenged with learning opportunities that sustain inquiry. Teachers should set the stage for students to be engaged in real-world problem solving.
