This is a very decent school for your children to attend. they do alot of extra activits such as field trips which the kids love. they do need to work on there fundings better, instead of asking parents to supply the whole class with extra supplys.

Small school atmosphere where everybody knows your name. Parental involvement is great. Lacking in updated technology needs in Elementary school. Schools lacks the motivation to obtain grants to get better equipment. Too many worksheets and lack of teacher monitoring.

In the 3 years our daughters attended Empire, we experienced the warmth, friendly and family atmoshpere they have to offer. If it weren't for a move out of state, our girls would still be attending. Mr & Mrs Roberts, Jessica & Kaitlin (our girls)

My daughters both attend Pre-K at Empire. I have found that the teachers are truly dedicated to making sure every child receives individual attention to insure the very best education possible. When my children began school neither could write her name, they now both write their name unassisted. They know every shape some of which I didn't even know (crescent,trapezoid, etc.) You truly receive all the benefits of a small country school with top of the line teachers. Their confindence has grown 100% and their attention span has increased 150%. It's amazing. Every child should be so lucky to attend a school even half as wonderful as Empire Elementry. It's a 5 hands down.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Oklahoma used the Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests (OCCT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, grades 5 and 8 in science and writing, grade 5 in social studies, grade 7 in geography, and grade 8 in U.S. history and government. 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.
