Some teachers there really care and understand teenagers. However, a few others have dimmed the lights somewhat. This is the reason for a 3. When my child was in 8th grade, it was horrible. Example: He scored higher on the state exam than what he received on his final reposrt card. (I hired a tutor for most of the school year). While the teacher obviously knew the subject at hand, for whatever reason, she did not teach the subject in a way that my child could learn. This is not what bothered me the most however. What bothered me was that she appeared to be (along with a couple of other teachers) pretty smugged and didn't like to make eye contact. In other words, these teachers have agendas and will follow the "game" plan at any cost. They do not have a heart for teenagers and really do not belong in the field they are in if they don't care enough about their students and fail to make a solid eye contact (to confirm with their students/parents) that they are on the same page with you and your child and want your child to succeed. After all, who is paying their wages?? if not the tax payers. Thumbs up on who to beware of; please pay attention to your parental intuition. I wish I did.

This school is just like it was if your a kid troubled or are in trouble, they have no time or need to keep you in the school system,they pick one and ride them ,stay on their backs knowing they will get a reaction, and they get enough, they push them out, it was done to me in the 90's here, but they tell people they have facilities to deal with these things,well that is still to get them out and make sure they mess up their record .!

Bixby Schools are wonderful! For being a small school district, they have much to offer the students. The teachers are excellent and the children are well behaved and interested in learning.

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.
