The School's motto is "Learning the Treasure within". Staying true to the motto, Oakridge offers students ample opportunities to experience, experiment various academic and co-scholastic activities with the aim of developing the critical creative thinking skills, a flexibility of approach, ability to work with and serve others, and the grit and fortitude in the face of challenges.
