Oak Ridge has a New Look

Oak Ridge Community,


Over the past few months I have worked with students, teachers, sponsors, coaches, and directors to update and modernize the Oak Ridge High School Logo and Brands. We are still the War Eagles, but we do have a slightly new look.


One of the new logos I am most proud of is the interlocking OR. This symbol is close to the original OR that represented our school and community. As I look forward to all the positive things Oak Ridge High School has - I wanted to make sure that our brand included the community our school represents.


I am proud to be the principal of Oak Ridge High School and to live in the Oak Ridge Feeder Zone. Over the next few months you will see branding change throughout the school and throughout uniforms and programs. While change always takes some time to adjust to I am confident over time that our new logo and brand will be a symbol of success and high character and will represent you and the rest of our community well.


My best,


AJ LiVecchi

Principal, Oak Ridge High School
