this is the BEST School in Oklahoma!!! My kids AND grandkids have attended this school.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted October 9, 2009

While most of the teachers are personable, there are very key employees that are not. It greatly effects the way the children percieve there school. Favoritism is very prevailant in this school. Always has been and suppose it always will be. As a former student and now a parent of students it is saddening to see.

We the teachers and students take great pride in our school. We all are always striving to achieve the very best that is possible within ourselves and others. The parents and community are very supportive of the needs of the children. Our students are given a lot of individualized attention and instruction which helps us to bond and reach all the students. We are like family and each child leaves our school with nothing less than great memories of their elementary education. We love teaching and inspiring our students to become whatever they choose and never stop reaching and striving for their goals.

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.
