Posted January 25, 2007

I think that some teachers are on cells to much. I tink that some teachers are nicer then others. I also think that some of the kids are not getting the disiplan they need.But On the other hand i think the principal is really nice.I like that sometimes you can stay after school.I like that you get rewarded for good deeds and such. I think it would be good if the school got new desks and text books.And redid the roof.

I feel that they have taken to many things away from the kids. They can put on a new roof and put in a new parking lot, and, yet, they take away many activities away from the kids. They feel they have worked hard to be able to get to do extra activivties and now they are pulled away.

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.
