Posted September 11, 2003

The short amount of time my daughter has been at this tremdous school, has been an extremely positve experience for both of us. She has not only grown educationally but emotionally. She has gained self-confidence by the positive reinforcements of the teachers and the principal. I only look forward to more growth within her and to see her to continue to blossom. I cannot say enough positive things about Guthrie Upper Elementry School!

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.
