We came to Alcott after Christmas Break. After being in another state from k-6th we have a lot to compare our new school with. I have to say as involved parent I am pleased with this school. As you go in the front door you can see they care about all the children. I love the way the teachers stay in contact with me and keep me informed about my child. We have to work together.

Alcott is terrible school. They care more about getting high test scores than teaching. There is a few good teachers but most of them are just horrible. The administators are terrible too, they would rather just torture the children than help them.

Alcott is an awesome school! The principals are easy to work with and take the time to listen to parents. My child had a great experience last year. Teachers knew him and worked together to make sure that he didn't fall through the cracks. It is the best middle school in Norman! Simply Exceptional!

Alcott is a great school! My kids are transfer students from Irving and I could not be any happier with the environment. Alcott's principal, Mr. Smith, is an amazing guy. The atmosphere is super friendly. The adults really care about the students personally as well as academically. Alcott is exceptional.

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.
