Posted February 19, 2005

Douglass School is a very caring, supportive school that houses many different types of programs. In addition to regular K-6 classes, the school houses the district's Behavior Disorder classes, Gifted and Talented classes, O.T.teachers, 2 four-year-old classes, and 4 self-contained autism classes. Teachers here also have many mainstreamed autistic students in their classrooms, some part-time and some full-time. This has provided a unique opportunity for the students to develop compassion and understanding for individuals that are different from themselves. The teachers make themselves available to parents, tailor programs for each child's individual needs, and attempt to provide each student with the skills needed for mastery of the state-mandated PASS objectives. Learning and children are the top priority at Douglass. Before and after school care is provided and teachers work well beyond the 8:30-4:45 that is required. Douglass well deserves its classification as an exemplary school!

The school has a low teacher to student ratio, but fails to take parents concerns serious. Especially if the concerns relate to violating your child safety. The pricipal has no problems with her staff making you child(7 years old) the adult.No good communication between staff and parent.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Oklahoma used the Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests (OCCT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, grades 5 and 8 in science and writing, grade 5 in social studies, grade 7 in geography, and grade 8 in U.S. history and government. 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.
