Comments: The Oak Ridge School sits next to the Oak Ridge Baptist Church at 7734 Old Dominion Rd. in Schuyler, VA. Windows
on the side of the schoolhouse face the church. Although the school appears in two 1930s-era Albemarle County school brochures, the
names of tearchers were not listed. A brochure from the papers of former Albemarle County Superintendent of Schools, Dr. David Pinckney
Powers, lists only the 1937-38 and 1938-39 salary for the 'Oak Ridge teacher' -- fifty dollars per month. In an interview for the
University of Virginia's Race and Place project, James Jordan remembered that his mother, Rebecca Jordan, taught at Oak Ridge in
the early 1900's. Mrs. Jordan also taught at the Mt. Alto School.
