Great school, Great location. High class citizens and students. Very active athletic and music progams.

Posted April 4, 2005

The school is like a prison, there are no windows except for the cafeteria. The rooms are small and crowded and the school officials are not envolved. The only good thing I can say is that they are updating the school and adding on at this time, and that the vocal music teacher for the school year of 96-97 was one of the best I have ever seen, he did a great job!

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.
