Love this school. So blessed to have such a wonderful and caring staff and group of educators! My children are not only accelling acedmically but in sports as well. My child loves his school and all of his teachers. What more could you ask for?

It is the best school along with Bethany High School in the state of Oklahoma. The teachers are allowed to teach with minimal student misbehavior. The schools setting is the safe and has a community feel to it. The administrators are superb leaders and visionaries. I feel blessed that my children have been in this school system.

Best school, bully's not acceptable, best teachers, best principals. Parents love to be involved as well as grandparents. Always on top of any threats to the students with quick response and shut-downs. Well supervised extracurricular activities. Really great school with high expectations of all students.

As a parent, this school promotes athetics over academics. For instance, one of the most recent inductees in the school's hall of honor was inducted because he made it to the NFL. Not on service, academics, but because he made it into the FL. Also, the middle school main focus is to get the student prepared to take the state tests not to ensure the student is learning. A BIG difference. The teachers have zero accountability, even to the ex-coach/principal. This school has so much potential, but lacks vision, focus, and leadership. D+

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.
