Three photos on top of the state of Missouri

We’re a rural school in southeast Missouri with a rich history in the Oak Ridge community and progressive ideas in the classroom. We care deeply about each and every student that enters our doors and are dedicated to ensuring their bright futures. Because we are smaller in size, we’re able to devote more attention to each student which helps them succeed academically and beyond.

The Oak Ridge R-VI School District was organized as a high school district in 1874. It has been recognized as the oldest continuous public high school district west of the Mississippi River. The district comprises 82.96 square miles of the northwest section of Cape Girardeau County. The district also has 1.10 square miles of Bollinger County and 2.62 square miles of Perry County.

Oak Ridge has been recognized as a Distinction in Performance district for seven years by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
