Because it has so much heritage in Oklahoma City. It's the first African American school built in the 1800's. My father and grandmother graduated from Douglass. Trojan for life!

Most teachers will help you through homework, school work, even through things you face in life. You have to be willing to talk to them and get to know then. When they say they wont tell anyone what you all talk about 90% of the time it is true... Ms. Lewis, Mr. Brown and Ms. Harland are the best!

There are teachers willing to go the extra mile to help. Tell the kids not to be ashamed to ask. It's ok to ask for help. Mr. Fransisco is the best.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Oklahoma used the Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests End-of-Instruction (OCCT EOI) exams to test students in high school in several subjects. The OCCT EOI is a high school graduation requirement. The OCCT EOI exams are standards-based tests, which means they measure specific skills defined for each subject by the state of Oklahoma. The goal is for all students to score at or above the satisfactory level on the test.
