I am not familiar with this school. However, I do know Chris Brewster. And I hold him in the highest regards. I am blessed to have had him for the four years of my high school career at Capitol Hill. He is an amazing teacher, leader and man.

I am a freshman,and i went to this school for 1 semester (i went to the middle school all three years).there were some teachers that were new and enthusiastic about teaching,and there are also some teachers that don't deserve to be there.This school could become so much better,if only they had the funds for it. The athletic department was decent,and is still improving. I have friends here that I knew since middle school, and tell me good things that are happening there.There are very intelligent people there,but they only offer about 2 AP courses.What this school lacks, they improve every year.

I graduated from Santa Fe South in 2005. I was one of the many teenage mothers that attended the ALPHA Program.If it wasnt for Santa Fe South and the awsome teachers and all of there help,I would have never graduated.

I visited all three Sante Fe schools today as part of an observation trip. I am amazed at the staff and students at all three! Great kids, great staff, great schools. You are a model for inner-city schools - check that - ALL schools, for the rest of the country and every administrator in this nation could learn something great from you...keep it up Saints!

The majority of the teachers are always willing to help students.I'm personally impressed with the music teacher Mr Filleman, my Children have gone there from 6th all the way up to 12th and have nothing negative to say. Staff keep up the good work!!

Having taught at an Oklahoma City public school prior to coming to Santa Fe South, I can say that the staff here is a true team and we work together to motivate, inspire, and educate our students. Since we are a smaller school we can get to know each and every student. We act in partnership with our parents who are much more active in our school than at most public schools.

I had three of my daughters attend Santa Fe South for a couple of years (from the beginning)My girls still talk highly of the teachers and principal. I can honestly say that this school is unique. Teachers know who their students are. The students and parents are actively involved with the school. The Principal (Mr Brewster) cares and involves himself in the education and well-being of our children. I've heard bad things that people say about this school, but I've never seen a group of people work so hard to improve our children's education.

Santa Fe South High School has given my child the oppurtunity to reach her goal of graduating and attending college. The teachers are very involved and interested in my child's learning experience. The learning enviroment has given my child the oppurtunity to reach her potential. The principal has established a safe enviroment for my daughter, therefore I feel that the teachers, principal, and staff have given her the oppurtunity to be successful. Go Seniors 2006!You're hard work has paid off!Congratulations!

Santa Fe High School has provided and safe and appropriate learning enviroment for my child. I feel that the teachers focus on the future on the students and really want to see them be successful and attend college. I feel that the principal has great leadership skills and that he has established a good foundation for his teachers and students to see progression in the school. My daughter has enjoyed attending Santa Fe for 10th, 11th, and 12th, and is very well prepared to attend college this Summer. Go Seniors!Congratulations!

Santa Fe South is a great school with a safe atmosphere. Here is a place where student enjoy going to class. They are always willing to do anything to support the school. We now have a Junior High located near our High School (about a mile away). Is not just a school, is family too. They also have a continuation program called Alpha, where students can work at their own pace. It is wonderful. We have a school dress code, which makes the school even better. I would encourage anyone to come to this school. Class Of 2006!

This school is awesome, there are teachers always willing to help you with any problem in any way they possibly can. They also now have grades 9-12 and are hopefully starting a middle school soon. I attend a credit recovery program they have, and with out it I don't know if I'd be attending school at this time. I wish more schools had a program to help students like myself.

This school is great. I went there for a couple of years, but then transferred to another. The teachers are great, the atomsphere is safe and you're actually wanting to learn.

I love the atmosphere of the school. The teachers are always willing to help the students. The faculty go the extra mile for each student. I believe this school is not quite the same as others. They are always in progress and they strive for excellence. This school is one to look for in the future.

They need to up date this site we now have 3 grades 9th, 10th, and 11th grade. My girls love this school. I like the idea of 20 students in each class sometimes less. I also like the idea of the teachers you start with in what ever grade your in they follow you to gradutation.

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.
