Sequoyah Middle School- Overall Disappointed- Some teachers are great but some are not or they're just out of college. I have to say that after relocating here, I had great hopes for my children to be educated a lot better than what they have been at this school. My advanced children were constantly put into the regular classes that were downright boring and literally just going over the same things they already knew. It took them going into the classes the following year to learn anything new and that wasn't until the end of the last semester. My kids have now fallen behind because of this. It was repeatedly pointed out but not corrected. Their Orchestra class is very poor as well. The teacher requires students to get private lessons. My child already knew the songs being taught in her 7th grade orchestra to perform them in concert as a 6 grader. (Teacher spends literally half of the class periods tuning her students' instruments.)?My child Knew how to tune her instrument from the 2nd wk of her 6 grade at the previous school, she wasn't allowed to at this one. Not until the 8 grade at this school. Save yourself the frustration and headaches and don't bother with Sequoyah! Terrible

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.
