Posted January 22, 2006

I brought 3 children to this area 10 yrs ago. 1 JH age and K,& pre K, one of which w/special needs. Cherokee has embrassed my children w/open arms. Not only the academics were important but the child as a whole. The schools, teachers & students have been for the most amazing. My oldest now has a chemistry degree, I contribute to a good foundation. Special needs child has never known he was different and loved by all. Youngest will start Highschool next year and seems to have life by the tail. We are being transfered from Cherokee, the comfort and saftey of the town and schools are the hardest thing I have ever left. It is a great place to raise children in a caring enviroment. Thank you to all the teachers, students and people that have been a part of it all & for 10 yrs well spent.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Oklahoma used the Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests End-of-Instruction (OCCT EOI) exams to test students in high school in several subjects. The OCCT EOI is a high school graduation requirement. The OCCT EOI exams are standards-based tests, which means they measure specific skills defined for each subject by the state of Oklahoma. The goal is for all students to score at or above the satisfactory level on the test.
