Small school atmosphere, low student /teacher ratio: 18- 20/1 avg. Parents very involved. Administration very helpful, concerned. PreK-8th,( 9-12th) can be any of surrounding highschools: Claremore, Sequoyah, or Inola-for residences south of Tiawah area. Both my children graduated there (8th Grade) transferred to Claremore. You have option to transfer early 7th-8th to Claremore Jr High. Justus-Tiawah almost like a private school. Only negative-is limited sports activities-Basketball-Track. However Claremore area has great soccer program, Little league Baseball, Optimist Youth Basketball League , Youth Football, and Rogers County has more horse population than any other County in Oklahoma. Great 4-H programs through Cooperative Extension Service. Also several Cub-Boy Scout troops in area. Girlscouts also.
We moved to this school in March and absolutley love it. My kids have made amazing improvents and are both above the state average. The principal is wonderful and the teachers are so nice and helpful. Thanks!
I absolutely love this school. One of the best I have ever seen. The teachers really care about the kids and make learning fun. Mrs. Lehman the principal is wonderful and helpful. Though there are not many out of school activities it has that close knit family feeling.
It is a great school I'v gone their since Pre K there is by far no better school in existence!!!
My son is at the south campus now, but has gone to north campus as well. We love the teachers and the work the kids do in class is far more advanced than Tulsa Public Schools. We live in Tulsa now--not by choice, but only temporary--I am grateful that my son can keep going to Justus-Tiawah, because I don't like the ways of the Tulsa school system. The only thing I would like to see added on to the sports program is baseball. I was excited to see the softball program and I'm hopeful to see baseball soon!
I love this school and I had to let my kids change because they need more help with school work then what the state will let this school do. I just wish the state would find a way so all schools even the smaller ones can help the kids that need extra help in school. People like smaller schools because of the family atmosphere and safety these schools give.
I have had nothing but great experiences with this school. The teachers know what it takes to help the children learn.
Justus-Tiawah is a unique place. Teachers and administration here truly care about my children and their needs. The student body as well are different from what I have experienced at other schools----well behaved and respectful. When I go on field trips or to sporting events with Justus-Tiawah kids, I am proud to be with them. Way to go J-T!
I found Justus-Tiawah to be lacking in not only classroom instruction and organization but very unprofessional in the way the administration ran the daily school operations and handled parental concerns.
Justus-Tiawah school is an awesome place for any child to receive an education. The Administration and Faculty are first rate. I would not want my children to go to any other school.
This is a GREAT school. This school has been a part of my husband's entire life. They still encourage family morales. I have never heard of a school that allows the children to perform the nativity scene for their Chrismas program. It's the best !!
Justus-Tiawah is the best school my children have ever attended. It is more like a family. The teachers care. So does the Principal. When we left in 2001, my children were ahead of the new school by at least a month.
My children began attending Justus during the 4th nine weeks session after we moved here from Sand Springs, OK. I was very impressed with this 'little' school compared to Sand Springs Schools which are supposed to be one of the best.
