Very small school. I would say half the teachers are great and half are not so great. Principal is great. Streets near school are really worn down, lots of potholes, nowhere to park. Neighborhood kind of worn down around school. There is very little parental involvement due to most parents having to work.

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.
