Okmulgee Primary Elementary School1

My children went to these school for years. My daughter is fine. She attend a different Elementary school. My son is failing and will be held back a year because we have changed primary school. He did get all A's in Okmulgee, once you enter the real world grading is so very different that you find your children failing. I was horrified to find his enterance test to the new school showed he should start in grade one. He was in grade three. So we now have him in grade two. He has worked hard to get through this. We even had him in Sylvan so that his reading was up to snuff. 8 hours a week, 1 and 3,000 dollars later. He is still doing all he can to pass this year. Please be careful where you place your children. Be sure your child isn't being passed without true grades.
This school system has a lot of economic and racial diversity which is a great education in itself. My son had an excellant second grade teacher and only 18 in his class. He learned to play chess, did the math development cup stimulus and had individual learning assignments by Ms. Neal. They are strict with discipline at this school and need more parents to get involved. The staff always decorates the school in fun ways for the kids. They have all new playground equipment. They do have too many kids in the kindergarten classrooms.
