This school is extreamly overcrowded with a minimum of 25 kids per class. Teachers are doing the best they can but are very overworked with having so many students. The kids are not allowed to be kids. They have to walk on the thrid tile from the wall with their hands behind their backs. At recess they must keep a distance of 3 feet away from anyone. Bullying on the playground is a major issue. My children have had to intervene on several occasions since monitors do not pay close attention to what is going on because they are too busy socializing with each other. When informed of an issue they couldn't care less and punish all involved regardless of their actions (even ones trying to do right). The district seems more interested in cramming as many kids as possible into a classroom and making more money than they are on the quality of education or the stress being placed on teachers and staff by over population. Picking up and dropping off is an absolute nightmare and parent involvement is very minimal. They can only teach to test (why OCCT scores are so high) but any real teaching is obsolete and forget about any one on one teaching.

Two of our great grandchildren go to this school. I have been to see several school plays and they do a great job.

My granddaughter loves her teacher Mrs. Penner. I feel the school really does focus on helping each child as an individual learn.

Last year was my child's first year at Angie Debo. We moved in from another Edmond school. We absolutely love the teachers. My daughter had a fantastic 3rd grade teacher. All the 3rd grade teachers worked well together to provide my child's grade a cohesive learning experience and social group. My daughter loved going to third grade and is looking forward to 4th. The office and administration is fantastic. A great school with great leadership!!

Overall, Angie Debo is a terrific school. Unfortunately, the cost of housing in this area goes up and up every year, and I have to make financial sacrifices so my kids could go to Angie Debo. However, I feel that it is worth it. It is their third year at Angie Debo; I am happy with their progress, but most importantly, kids love their school and enjoy it. Aftercare is also very nice, kids get to play outside on a big safe playground when weather permits. Inside aftercare activities in addition to movies and games include a computer lab and a gym. From the kids, I have not heard anything bad about the school, nothing that would concern me in terms of quality of care or safety. They do get quite a bit of homework, but I feel it only benefits them. Very nice school.

We love Angie Debo. Our children (3 of them) love to go to school and have had excellent teachers in the 5 years we have attended there. I feel well informed about my children's education and what goes on in their school day. Its a great place!

Angie Debo has outstanding teachers who challenge students in creative, innovative ways. The enrichment program has been a great benefit to my child, encouraging her to be her best and think 'out of the box.' Parent involvement is excellent and the support staff is the best I've seen.

Angie Debo is in Edmond, Oklahoma. The elementary school is just over 10 years old and in a newer neighborhood. The building is nice and modern. The basketball court even has real wood floors. Because it's so new there isn't yet as much parent envolvement as with some older schools. It is by far better than Oklahoma Public Schools! My biggest concern was that none of my child's teachers knew how to use positive reinforcement when grading papers. A 2nd grader for example would get a '27/35' grade on an assignment. This means nothing to a child that age. Despite our repeated requests the teachers wouldn't use A,B,C,etc or happy faces on great papers. The teachers do push the kids with paperwork assignments and expect a elementary kid of any age to be self disiplined enough to work periodically on their own. Overall a very good school that could be excellent!
