In the school community, the opportunity to learn directly relates to student behavior. Students are expected to put forth their best effort and to conduct themselves in a manner that will promote a safe, orderly learning environment. Students are responsible for their behavior and we expect them to accept the consequences of their behavior.
The key to appropriate behavior at Oakridge is RESPECT. Respect for self, respect for others, and respect for property.
