I would not recommend this school to anyone. It has the most discouraging teachers and staff...Not all hold a degree and both the superintent and retired elementary principle need togo on they are the biggest problems...they love to be in control and prove u are beneath them....This is a sports school for kids woth The last name or wealthy family...my child was bullied and singled out by teachers,coaches, and staff...

I'm the grandfather of 2 elementary students. I have found the staff and teachers to be there for the children, they invite parent involvement. This school has a lot of love for the students and discipline. Several state champion academic teams. Education is stressed and good extracirricular is a by product.

I enjoy the security that Okatha provides for the kids.

Elementary is excellent, But if your child does not play basketball or baseball your child is pretty much wasting there education.

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.
