The safety with children is sorely lacking at this school. The principle does not seem to care much when confronted about issues that arise. We are thrilled with our childs teacher, but not so much with the school as a whole. The PE teacher is great as well as the school secretary!

Parklane is a great school. The principle is very caring and is involved with the children. He encourges parents to be more involved and welcomes parents to the shcool anytime. The teachers are great and work with the children in areas that they need. With my son being diagnosed with ADHD, the teachers have had to work extra hard with him and have done a great job. He is in his 3rd year there. We are soon PCSing and can only hope that the new location will have a great school like the Parklane Pythons.

This school is behind in curriculum. Principal does not seem to care nor is he involved in the school. Booster blub and PTA are the most unorganized I have ever dealt with and I have kids from elementary to college now.

I have children at this school and i really believe that teachers are good teachers but they are not willing to help the children that need the extra help. I'm not sure if the problem is they don't have enough help, finances for the school or what. The expectation is for every child to be on the same level at the same time is impossible.

I currently have a child enrolled in this school. She has been there for 2 years. This school has a great principal who is easy to talk to and will try and take care of any problems or concerns you have as a parent or student. The teachers are wonderful and really care about their students. The communication between parents and teachers is not a problem here. The teachers really listen to what you have to say and will work with you and your child to overcome any difficulties or problems.

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.
