Best school ever! Not much fighting... It could improve if they tried to help kids with home problems, other than getting them into trouble for it, other than that, it's great!


Posted February 3, 2014

I love this school, so much fun and learning! Wish I could be young forever...


Posted May 1, 2011

Although they have controlled a lot of the gang activiity; The bullying is very bad! This school treats every child that walks through the door like a hoodlum and does not take threats seriously. I am very disappointed in this school district. Fort Sill really needs its own school system because there is NO learning happening here!

I am so disappointed in this school and the Lawton Public School district as a whole.

I am a parent and my sixth grade daughter is not challenged. The adminstration has ignored my request for assistance in this matter. The students do not even have their own school books and they do not have any homework ever! This sets children up for great failure later in life.

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.
