I appreciate Roosa Elementary's commitment to excellence. Both students and teachers work diligently to exceed expectations. Students are expected to learn a character trait every month, along with a quote that supports the trait. Stop any student in the hall and they will be able to converse with you with academic vocabulary and respect. Teachers and staff go way beyond what you would expect from a public school. They spend hours preparing for each student's needs. They attend professional development. They keep the grounds beautifully. I am proud to work with this team. I'd like to say thank you to the parents. They are committed and involved!

I am a parent of three girls. My two oldest have 'graduated' from Roosa. My youngest is presently attending. I find that the teachers take their job very seriously by giving my children the best education possible. Roosa is also a Great Expectations Model school.

I have had children at Roosa for two years. The teachers are good and fair, the administration, not so much. If you have a child with special needs, this is not the place to go.

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.
