I graduated in 1994. I can honestly say that Paden does not have the same clique problems that many schools have. They had good teachers, and a caring staff. Kids were invited to do their best. High school isn't about the town, its about what you make of it. I can honestly say I was just as popular as the next kid, and my parents were far from rich. It is the main reason I would send my children there. Everyone has the chance to excel and to fit in.

I disagree, I graduated from Paden and have children there now. It doesn't have all the extra things a bigger school has, but it does have personal attention! The teachers all know the children and how well they are doing. Yes you do have the problem with status, but you have that anywhere. As far as who has more money, I think it is not fair but is that way in the real world no matter if you are in school, have a job or whatever else you do.

This is a sorry school. I am very disappointed and think that Paden should be shutdown. It is a complete joke! all that matters is who has money and who doesn't!

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.
