Will Rogers is the very best elementary school in Altus, OK. Mrs. Nobles has been the principal there for many years and I think she does an outstanding job keeping students motivated and safe. Both my children have been to this school. The teachers show so much interest in each child. They genuinely want each child to succeed. I have a special needs child and they have worked with us continually to improve and support my son's education and well being. They have just added more security to the entrance into their school with all the schools being on a higher alert with recent schools being in the news. Will Rogers open their doors to parents with lots of parent-child activities and concerts for each grade throughout the year. I highly recommend this school. I can't say it enough, the teachers here are of the highest caliber. The staff makes this school A+!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Totally involved into the kids health and safety and lets parents know what's going on if there's a problem. Very excellent school. wouldn't have my kids going anywhere else until it's time for them to go to middle school

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.
