I graduated from Kingfisher recently and I am so proud to say where I am from because Kingfisher holds their students to very high standards. You leave that school with a sense of pride that will last with you for years. As far as the cliques are concerned, finding a school that doesn't have cliques is almost impossible.

I am currently attendin KHS and I have just moved here this past January and I think that the school environment is wonderful and I pretty much love all of the KHS staff. But the cliques are very strict so finding out where you belong is sometimes not easy.

I transferred my child from Dover to KFR school system in his 9th grade. Both he and I have been extremely happy with the quality of education, class size, teachers, emphasis on higher education, individual attention, facilities, safety, staff. I noted the comment about cliques, as a parent can't give any insight about that. Great school.

Most of the teachers are great and safety is not even an issue. The only problem with this school is that it is divided into cliques.

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.
