Overall the school has been great my kid's love getting up in the morning and going to school,Both my daughter and son are doing very well and love there teacher's , My only problem with Oklahoma city school's are the school uniform policy they were meant to stop gang affilation,But i think it's weird that highschool student's don't have to were uniform's and elementary student's do.And that is why I'am taking my kid's out of okc public school.

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.
