I attended Latta Schools my entire pre-college career. It was always a very challenging school that drove me to learn and prepared me for each new step in my life. I love the faculty and staff and have had very few problems with the school as a whole. It was a great education and a great place to grow up.

overated! lol this is small town clique. Principal will let you in only if your grades are extremely high....even an average good kid can be refused...all for ratings! My student is all honors and we wont let him in this mess. really...I have no issues other than what I see. its a clique situation and your kid may be the victim of the clique....if you dont care...do it.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Oklahoma used the Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests (OCCT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, grades 5 and 8 in science and writing, grade 5 in social studies, grade 7 in geography, and grade 8 in U.S. history and government. The OCCT is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Oklahoma. The goal is for all students to score at or above the satisfactory level on the test.
