So disappointed in the principal's lack of empathy and character in not doing what is best for students.

My daughter has gone to this school her whole life and is now in High School. She enjoys the close relationships she has with her classmates and it helps that she has known them her whole life. She feels that when new students come to this school they often are made welcome by upper and lower classmates. She enjoys haveing the experience of knowing the vast amount of exchange students that attend Comanche and have for years, thanks to Linda Watson who does a tremendous job with the program. This school is not with out problems but are always taken care of quickly by the faculty mainly Mr. Davidson who is totally dedicated to the school. He is always working late and early hours.

We love this school. It is small enough that my children don't get lost in the crowd of students, and they offer many programs that much larger schools don't offer. We would go anywhere else!

My children love going to school at Comanche. My husband and I really feel confident that they are receiving a top quality education there. The technology they utilize in every class is second to none. They have amazing after school and summer programs for the students. Their Art, music, technology, and agriculture departments all have received state recognition and a couple have received national recognition. Most of the teachers are very impressive, exhibiting professionalism, and excellent parent/teacher communication. As for administration, the word 'approachable' comes to mind. They are professional, prompt, and fair in their handling of various circumstances facing their stations. The superintendent is terrific. Friendly, professional, hard working...I personally have seen his truck parked at the office and his office light on as early at 5:00 in the morning and as late as 10:00 in the evening. That speaks volumes to me as to his dedication to the district.

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.
