I went to this school in the 80's and it is still better than the rest of the middle schools in this school district.....they are on top of the issues and get them dealt with fast except when it is someone on their staff. then there is a problem.

We moved from OKC to Moore so that our child could go to a better middle school. Her grades are so much better and she is now on NJHS and loves her school and all of her teachers. Thank you Dr. Bean for the great work that you do with all the kids at your school. The staff that I've had to deal with in the office and all of your teachers are great. Keep up the hard work.

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.
