    Overall Experience: Well it was about as good as high school can be, but I can't wait to get out and learn about things I actually care about with people who aren't so ignorant or spoiled.

    Food: I've never gotten school lunch and I don't know anyone who does, so I have no idea what it's like.

    Sports & Fitness: Very consistently, Oak Ridge does very well in all athletic areas. We have teams winning the section and going to the NorCal championship, and Oak Ridge sends many students to college to continue playing their sports.

    Teachers: Oak Ridge has some of the best teachers around. Of course there are a couple who slack and nobody really likes, but there are amazing educators at Oak Ridge. They go above and beyond and truly care about the success and education of their students.
