I am very happy with this school. They have zero tolerance for any kind of bad behavior. The principle's are very nice and very organized. Same with the teachers. I am very glad that this school is a blue ribbon school for most inproved test scores!

I love my school. I'm not a parent, i'm a student, a 6th grader, but I want you all to know how great this school is. My mom is so happy to hear me saying 'I love school' instead of 'I hate school, please don't make me go' and instead of faking sick saying 'Hurry, I don't wanna be late'!It's a safe, happy, colorful place that I love spending 8 hours in 5 days a week. I wouldn't trade my school for any other school in the world and i mean that!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Oklahoma used the Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests (OCCT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science and writing. 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.
