Oak Ridge High School - October 14, 2022
Principal Update - Shawn Almond
Good Afternoon! I would like to thank you for all the support offered to our students at the different events this fall. The cheering and enthusiasm for our War Eagles is exciting to see. Congratulations to our boy’s water polo, tennis, and boy’s cross country team for making the play-offs. The theatre, choir, and orchestra programs have put on rousing performances this fall. Band, cheer, and drill teams demonstrate their skill and expertise each week. Our football and volleyball teams are in the mix for a play-off position. Come out, bring some friends, and support our groups the rest of the fall. Yell loud and be proud to be a War Eagle!
Report cards went home today with our students. They can also be found through the parent access center on the district’s website. Take time to review your student’s grades and make new goals for this nine weeks. The two nine weeks grades along with the final exam will make up the student’s semester average. To earn credit for the class, a student must have a 70 for the semester average this fall.
Have a great weekend and I hope to see you soon at one of our events

AP Exam Registration
AP exam registration for full year and fall semester courses starts
October 11th and goes through November 7th.
Late fees apply after November 7th.
Students taking semester courses in the spring (Economics, Psychology)
will register in February.
Exams may be purchased through SchoolCash.
In addition to offering rigorous content and preparing students for future success,
students who score a 3 or higher can earn 3 hours of college credit per exam.
Most colleges grant credit for AP exams; however, please check with your child’s college to determine if and how credit is granted. AP classes and exam scores have a positive impact on admission decisions with 85% of selective colleges and universities reporting that they review scores as part of the admission process.
These credits also allow students to skip introductory courses in college
letting students move on to their majors and areas of interest earlier.
