My daughter is starting her 5th year at Ketchum and I have another starting pre-k the teachers are great. Frost and Cornish couldn't ask for more caring teachers. I do have to agree with the other writers that the office staff is great. thank you, a mom that cares

My children transferred to Ketchum 5 years ago and we have never regretted a day of it. They have teachers that will push and challenge the children. The teachers treat the children with respect. They have a wide variety of extracurricular activities. The art teacher Mr. Hurt actually has my child believing she can draw. As with any school you will come across a teacher you aren't fond of but that doesn't mean they aren't good for the kids

My children went to school there and I think it is one of the best. The teachers were always putting the needs of the kids first, and the office staff was always helpful anytime you had a question. My children attend a differnt school now because we had to move, the they both still talk about Ketchum and how they liked going to school there. As a parnet, I would rate this shool as being a 10!! Thank you, Kathy Baugus

I have three children that go to this school. 1st, 4th, and 7th. I have really liked all my girls teachers. Mrs. Reed has been a great teacher for my 4th grader. As well as the teachers in the past. Over all I love the teachers and staff. Great 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.
