This is my school. At this point we have more than 400 pupils to educate We are great educators of diverse backgrounds. We bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to this learning community. We get a lot of bad publicity, with very few being anxious to come out and spend time getting to know us. We are partnered with SandRidge Energy Co. This is a company that believes in the pupils as well as the educators. We appreciate the time that they volunteer. As they invest the time to assist us in equipping our pupils, we look forward to great futures for all of them. Thank You, Oklahoma

This school had made MAJOR improvements in the last 2 years. They have instituted academic helps such as D.E.A.R. time for 20 minutes everyday, Math Minutes with musical ways to help student learn math. They have partnered with a behavioral health program to help reduce in class distractive behavior to enhance the quality of the learning environment, as well as a weekly, school wide, character education assembly. They are doing big things in a lot of good ways!

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.
