We transfered to this school from another district, I am much happier with the school and the staff here than at any of the other schools that we have been at.

My son will be in 3rd grade this year and we love Apollo. All the teachers really seem to care about their students and really go the extra mile for them. I wish more parents were involved at the school.

My son is in Ms. Kaiser's class and he love her. We as parents do too. I went to school here and nothing has changed except maybe a computer or two. This is the best elementary in PC Schools.

I am so happy that my son now attends Apollo. He came from a school that he and I both hated. This year I can tell that he is learning something and he actually counts the day until he goes back to school on the weekends and vacations. This has been a real relief to my as a parent to now that my son is happy and learning at his school.

I am very disappointed in the education that my children have received from Appollo Elementary. I do not feel as though enough time or energy is spent on educating our students. too much of the teachers time is spent parenting and discipling children who don't get it at home. I am also disappointed in the lack of homework that my children receive. 1-2 pages of work per week is unacceptable. it's no wonder that our children can't read, write, or count! That is a fact that is well supported by the test scores of the children attending this school. Its great that we have lots of fine art programs and other extracurricular activities for our children to participate in, but my main concern and probably the concerns of most parents is that their child receive an education that will prepare them for LIFE. ITS NOT HAPPENING THERE!

My daughter attends Apollo Elementary. She started her Kdg. year there and will continue through 5th grade. I am in the school on a daily basis, and therefore I am able to see and observe what's going on. I have been quite pleased with the academic curriculum presented to the students. I am quite impressed with the dedication the teachers exhibit. I especially appreciate the fact that Apollo offers FREE breakfast and lunch each school day to all enrolled students. Apollo also has an active PTA. Membership is low, however, each year the numbers have increased. One thing about the faculty, it appears thet they choose to teach there. Last, this year's principal has done an outstanding job of creating a safe, friendly, kid oriented atmosphere. Way to go Mrs. Crump!

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.
