Oakland High School (OHS) is located within Murfreesboro, Tennessee and contains approximately 1600 students. OHS is part of the 6th largest school system in the state of Tennessee.[2] OHS serves eastern Murfreesboro and the rural areas of northeastern and eastern Rutherford County, including Lascassas, Milton and Kittrell.

History[edit]

OHS opened in 1972 along with its sister school Riverdale High School (Tennessee) in order to relieve the six over-populated county high schools in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. These schools have one of the oldest rivalries in the country as it has spanned over 40 years in multiple sports and academics. Oakland's rival is neighboring Siegel High School.

Curriculum[edit]

Since 2007, Oakland High School has offered the IB Diploma Programme.[3]

Athletics[edit]

  • OHS Football has had three state championship teams, 1984, 1998, and 2008
  • OHS Baseball won seven state championships in 1990, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1998, 1999, and 2000
