I love this school. My kids have soared in this school. Much better than lawton public school. I would recommend it to everyone. The prinicpal is awesome and interacts with the kids as well as parents. My daughter grew and expanded her skills in reading which was awesome. My son was taken into Title I Math and received tutoring there. They help you reach your family and educational goals!!

I love the elementary school at Elgin. As a Military family, we move a lot. The teachers, staff, and community welcomed us. My son had ADD and the school staff immediately got him started in PT/OT/speech to help him catch up. We will miss this school!

I think Elgin is a very good school becasue it has so many things to offer each child. It not only has sports but extra activities the young men and women can choose to do along with a great acadimic program. The school as well as the city is a fast growing community.

Mr. Garland has assembled and developed some of the most vibrant educational programs I have come across during all my moves working with the military. Staff is accessible and extremely helpful. My son has been there from first to third grade. His teachers were Ms. Greenup, Ms. Webb, and Ms. Derringe, respecfully. They all nutured my son during a tremendous transition from a first grade in Germany where he spoke only German to the bright and successful English speaking third grader he is today. Hats off to a caring, but still challenging Elgin elementary school. Jay Bohnet

As a military family this is going to be the hardest school for my children to leave and everyone there has been so welcoming I will always be gratefully for the loyalty the teachers, principle and staff have for the children

My son is in going into the 6th grade and we have had no problems with the school, he did not like one of his teachers in 5th grade, but that was about it(who hasn't at one time or another) He made good grades. It was a big jump from 4th grade to 5th grade or perhaps I just wasn't ready for him to be so responsible???

My son was in the 5th grade last year and we hated everyday of it!! He is now in the 6th grade and we still hate it. The middle school is awful!! If you are an outsider or if your child has any (ADD, ADHD, seizers, behind in reading or math) issues he/she will be treated awfully! Hopefully we will be transfering again soon. I do have to say although the middle school is awful the elementary school is great. I have to agree with everyone else on that one!! That principal and staff are wonderful and truly care about the children and their education! Wonderful special education program there.

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.
