Oaks Christian School, home to cutting-edge computers, state-of-the-art sports facilities and gourmet coffee, opens its doors today to about 200 students. But officials at the $40-million school, which was built with a golf course fortune and costs $12,000 a year to attend, say they do not want it to become known as Rich Kids High. Eighty percent of the students come from public schools, they point out, and the school has awarded $500,000 in scholarships to members of the inaugural student body.
