Principal's Message

The Moore School District is known for its high standards and academic excellence. It is a privilege to be the administrator of Oakridge Elementary. The Oakridge teachers, staff, students, and patrons contribute to making Moore Public Schools one of Oklahoma’s most respected school districts.

A little bit about me, I was raised in Moore and started Kindergarten at Northmoor Elementary and graduated from Moore High School.  After graduation, I attended the University of Oklahoma and earned a Bachelor of Science in Education.  I began my career as an elementary teacher at Broadmoore Elementary where I taught third and sixth grade. After ten years of teaching, I returned to school at the University of Central Oklahoma, where I earned my Master's in Elementary Administration.  Following my Master's program, I served as an Assistant Principal for 5 years in three different Moore schools. I came to Oakridge after serving as Head Principal at Plaza Towers Elementary and South Lake Elementary. To say my Moore roots run deep would be an accurate description since my husband and two children are also products of Moore Public Schools.

My educational background, personal experiences and loyalty to MPS have shaped my philosophy of education. Oakridge's educational system provides students with the skills needed to be successful.  Student achievements are accomplished within a safe learning environment where all are stakeholders meet high expectations. Students and their families are supported to ensure they are reaching their social, physical, emotional, and intellectual goals. Students of Oakridge excel in academic, athletic, and artistic disciplines as well philanthropic initiatives that support our community and school directly.

I encourage you to become part of our community.

Amy Simpson, Principal Oakridge Elementary School
