Oakland High School (OHS) is located in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, United States. It enrolls approximately 1900 students. OHS is part of the fifth largest school system in the state.[2] OHS serves eastern Murfreesboro and the rural areas of northeastern and eastern Rutherford County, including Lascassas, Milton and Kittrell.


OHS opened in 1972 along with its sister school Riverdale High School in order to relieve the six over-populated county high schools in Murfreesboro. 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 current biggest rival is Siegel High School.


Since 2007, Oakland High School has offered the IB Diploma Programme.[3] Student GPAs averaging at around 2.9, or B-, and ACT scores at 21.2/36.


  • 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
