Oakridge Founders and Early Leaders

Early founders of The Oakridge School talk about how the story all began in 1979.

Dr. Richard Enos, a retired Oakridge Regent, Alumni Parent, and TCU Professor, reflects on our school's mission, which seeks to bring out the best version of each and every student.

It takes commitment to achieve almost anything, including opening a new school. Founding Parent Susy Sportsman discusses the dedicated individuals who gave their all to Oakridge.
