Posted February 8, 2012

So far, I am somewhat pleased with the staff at Harmony. They are creative and try to keep the students interested in learning. I am concerned with the test scores compared to the rest of the State. It seems the higher the grade the lower the scores. Being the mom of a female student at Harmony I am very concerned about the dramatic difference between the boys and girls test scores. It seems that the female student body is scoring significantly lower than the male student population. Also, the older they get the lower the scores go and the female group is below the state average. Wondering what is being done to get our Students both male and female above or at least average to the other Students in Oklahoma. We are a small community with good resources. What is holding us back?

Great school. The building isn't pretty, however I recently learned that a pretty school doesn't mean a good education. We moved and I wish my children could still go to this school. Great car line, great teachers and great academics.

The teachers and administration at this school hold high standards for the students and teach them how to be well mannered individuals as well as learn the cirricula. I as a parent of a student that attends here and educator employed at a school in another community am deeply pleased with the instruction provided by Harmony elementary. My children will be prepared for their future education when they move on as well as have self confidence and know that they mean something to the teachers, staff, and administration at Harmony!- Angela Hockett

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.
