Since my son came to this school he has blossomed spiritually and educationally. The level of education is wonderful at this school. The teachers are excellent in what they do. The only complaint that I have is that they do not give written assignments so that he parents can help with homework. Otherwise, the staff of this school knows every student and helps when there are problems. Thank God for this school!!!

i attended this school for all three years,and i couldn't have gone to a better place! the teachers push you to succeed in class,and the principal is very in touch with the students here. Their teaching methods are creative, and will try their best to help you when you need it.They have helped me grow,and gave me something many other schools lack of ,which is discipline. If it weren't for my teachers,coaches ,and the principal, i would have easily fallen with the wrong crowd.i graduated here last year, and i miss SFS dearly. the athletic dept. is improving.Students that were unruly the first year in 6th grade,are now much better behaved,and they even said that they really appreciated what this school has done for them. My teachers and principal will forever be engraved in my heart, GO SAINTS!

I went to this school and the teachers really do care! They'll actually take their time out to help you and explain things to you, inlike some teachers and schhols would just expect you to learn it the first time

Santa Fe South is the best thing that has ever happened in my daughters life . The teachers are excellent and very involved in the students success . The school is a mixture of low income and mid income students , but there is never any nonsense like we dealt with at webster , no race riots and few if any fights . The kids take pride in theyre school and instead of it being cool to be part of a gang , at santa fe south its cool to be smart ! My daughter attended 2 years and is now in high school , she misses SFS dearly .

My son has done great at this school. The teachers and staff at this school really care about the students. The kids accept each other and don't belittle or bit on each other like at other schools. I think they are doing a great job here.

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.
