All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I have two children that attend school in Atoka. I have been very pleased with their teachers. The facility is in terrible shape, but they recently passed a school bond to build a new elementary school.

What a difference a year can make! Our classrooms are to capacity which is a testimony to the quality of education and changes that were needed to make our school on top again. If we can get a new school building we will be unstoppable! Love Atoka Elementary School!!!

I think the teachers are extremely cliquish. Parents are really discouraged from being involved at all.I have tried to be very involved and feel as though I were a nuisance or bother, parents arent allowed in the classroom period. The doors on the classrooms are kept locked so there is no open door policy or even watching how your child's teaching methods are. You are allowed certain intervals ( each teacher has a 30 minute block) in which to call and speak w your child' teacher each day. I work and can't allot a time each day that I can call them. Lord knows they have no qualms about calling a paren at work. I thought the new principal would help but it actually seems worse than before to me. Very disappointed. Victory Life Academy is closing this yr so we are out of options unfortunately.

I agree that the bulilding is very old and needds much improvement ( A new school)But the building is not it's only problem ! My Child attened there for her 2nd 3rd and 4th grade year and I was very disappointed ! I found that most of Teachers to be very clickish and the most popular Teachers taught the most popular kids , I feel this is doing an injustice to the students because they do not learn to interact with children of every race or finacial status!! I feel sorry for the New Parents and students who attend school there ! The Teachers nor the Staff are very welcoming and quite snobby! I am thankful that there is a new Princapal this year maybe she can STOP this nonsence and be an example to our Teacher , Staff and Students!!

Atoka Elementary teachers are the lifeblood of this school. There are many dedicated, caring teachers who encourage student success. My child has flourished here.

I feel that Atoka Elementary has a very strong academic base. My classroom has over 50% of the children already reading 130 wpm. I feel that a rating of a 3 does not have any comparison of the things that are happening here. I have wonderful parental support and with a very low income rate as a classroom whole.

Atoka Elementary is a wonderful school! It has a supportive administrative staff, devoted teachers, excellent aides, and a caring support staff. The only drawback to this school is the age of the building. Put these people in a new building and just watch what they can accomplish!

As a parent, Atoka public schools has offered my children a good,solid education. From the faculty to the adiministration to the school board, everyone is trying to to the best job possible. The teachers and staff at the elementary school are particularly dedicated to a good learning environment along with a structured and caring attitude. They understand that each child/situation is different and they act accordingly.

Atoka Elementary has so much to offer! From Spanish, PE, Music, Gifted and Talented, School Programs, and Reading Counts! We are proud that all three of our children go or have gone to this school. There are improvements to be made with the building and adminstration but we have the best teachers in the county! The PTA keeps everyone informed on ways we can work as a team to help our children be all they can be!
