This school does have challenging academic program and arts program. However, the leadership at this school is NOT strong. They are generally unavailable, or unwilling to get involved when there's a problem. A number of the teachers use foul language, or have no control of their classrooms. They also refuse to test children for learning problems, insisting that "we can handle it ourselves" (not), or "they're just being lazy" (again, not). If you're looking for a school where communication is key, stay far away from Classen!

Middle school english, science, foreign language teachers excellent and cover syllabus well. Math reasonable. Social studies not covered systematically at all. Excellent opportunities for participation in science fairs, essay competititions, math quizzes. Excellent availability of music, art, speech, drama classes as the school offers a separate IB (Academic) track as well as a VPA (visual/arts) track, with overlap possible. Good level of parent involvement via the PA and web communication.

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.
