Although the school seems to be clean that is probably the only good thing about it. My child has had problems with his teachers aggressive behavior constantly yelling at the whole class or getting in some of the kids' faces and shouting at them or telling them to"shut up!" The Teacher even has kids taking turns massaging her neck. I spoke to a few other Parents and they also have had problems with some of the Teachers yelling at the students! One day I was picking up my child and I heard one of the Teachers yelling at a boy as he walked to his Parent's car. He was on the sidewalk, not in danger. She yelled at him to wait until she told him he could go,he was 2 cars away from his Parent's car (his Mom saw the whole thing, looked very upset) the Teacher just turned around as if she did nothing wrong!

This is the worst school that I have ever come across. There are several staff members that yell at the children. The principal knows about this but does nothing. In fact, she defends their actions and attacks the parents for pointing out their concerns. This is a horrible school.

This is a great school. We moved here from a large city in GA where our children attended a school of excellence. Charles Evans has been an above average experience. We love 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.
