For this age group, this portion of the school is the best. One of my children started in the 3/4 yr old class and her teachers were wonderful. Her Pre-K (Lindsey) and K (Ryan) understood her perfectly and really helped her adjust to going to school. As a 1st grader, she loves going to school. The school administration is very involved with the students. Parents are encouraged to join in for everything. The staff at ELC work very hard to ensure that your child is with a teacher that understands them. Really a great place for your kids to start school.

I attended Fort Gibson Schools all but 4 years of my K-12 grades and I fully plan on staying around here till my son graduates and he is in Kindergarden now. His teacher 'Mrs. Ireland' deserves all the credit in the world for helping him learn his reading and writing at an alarming rate! This is the best school in the State of Oklahoma.

Ms. Kindell and the staff at Fort Gibson Early Learning Center have gone about and beyond the call with my son. I teach, coach and live in another district and drive my son 15 miles one way to that school everyday and I am grateful. At Fort Gibson you can get a private school education at a public school price.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
