My son has done well and has had great teachers at IHS. However, I believe that there is always room for improvement both inside and outside the classroom. The school could use some remodeling (restrooms, old building at football field, etc.) I hope that the new superintendent will take Idabel to the 'next level' so all of its students can have a chance at success.

They are right they need to be strickter on the kids who dont want to learn suspend them or remove them from the class some form of disciplinary action other than ilc or morning detention which is just a inconvencience to parents who cant get their kids there on time because of the bad economy and its just not very well controlled teach the kids who want to learn and get rid or highly discipline the ones who dont. there is no other way that this school can improve without this kind of action, too much gang affiliation is involved too. It isn't right my kids and other concerned parents kids should have to deal with this. It needs to be resolved and the principles arent doing to well to solve this problem, Yes they are cracking down on skipping and sagging of britches but that does not solve the prob.

There are good and bad things about Idabel High School. I think the worst thing is that other students can be disruptive to the other student who actually want to learn. Student apathy is a big problem there. The teachers do the best they can to help the ones who are willing to listen and learn. The curriculum is very limited and the students aren't as well prepared for college as they should be.

IHS administration does not listen to its parents. It does not encourage parents to participate. And sadly the curriculum is terrible. In this modern day, they still promote sports more than anything else.

I think that Idabel High School is a Great place for your child to go to school, it's a great opprotunity. The teacher that helped my daughter the most this year was David White, he helps with anything that they need to get up with.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 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.
