We absolutely love this school! My nephews went there for several years and did awesome. Because of this we moved to the neighborhood to put our daughter in this school. She has been there 4 years now and we intend for her to stay through 5th grade. We love you Linwood staff!

We love Linnwood Elementary. The principal is wonderful as are the teachers and staff. Our boys love going to school everyday. Plus, it is a small school and so all the teachers know who all the kids are. They have a great music program. We couldn't be happier.

I love everything about Linwood Elementary. I had my daughter in putnam city schools and was quite nervous about moving her to Oklahoma city schools but she has learned more in the 6 months she has been there than 1 and 1/2 years at her other school. I am very impressed and intend on sending her to Linwood next year.

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.
