They help their Cheyenne and Arapaho children learn their native language. Work well helping their children receive counseling if necessary.

The School serves and promotes the Cheyenne & Arapaho children within the daily education of all children. They are a great model of inter-cultural elementary education. Mr. Shelton and Staff/Teachers are superb and sensitive professionals doing more with less, especially so in OK. Why does this state undermine public education. Isn't this the place and political party that declares itself the education party. Wow!

Darlington School is like no other school we have ever been to. The teachers and students are very unique. I have been an observer at several diffrent schools and never have witnessed what I have there. The teachers go above and beyond in helping raise our children. The kids are family and truley care and try to help one another. Keep up the good work. Thanks for providing a safe place for my children to learn.

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.
