Harrah High School is a very good school that functions well on the available resources it has. The budget always limits a school but the principal's and teachers do an excellent job. The principal has a genuine care and concern for the students and school improvement and the teachers show effort to help the student's in many ways.

Overall, the school is okay. I suppose any school with budget crisis are all about the same. The educators are great, yet under paid. I have problem with the 'administration' cutting teaching jobs and nursing positions, yet the superintendent gets a raise and the school district provides him a car to drive while he's out at the Dollar store or the steak house or even in the city dining at a local eatery during school hours. Perhaps it's all business, huh? Maybe if he loses this job he can go to work for the government, he's already got the high paid, underworked business down.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Oklahoma used the Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests End-of-Instruction (OCCT EOI) exams to test students in high school in several subjects. The OCCT EOI is a high school graduation requirement. The OCCT EOI exams are standards-based tests, which means they measure specific skills defined for each subject by the state of Oklahoma. The goal is for all students to score at or above the satisfactory level on the test.
