This school is a great school. The students get taught all core parts of everything that is needed. The school is now led by Chad Graham. I feel the sports will make a turn around for the boys basketball. Im pleased with the staff and will love to see the outcome.

This schools is very poor in quality. The number of students per class isn't even enough to carry sports like baseball or football. The only foreign language offered is Choctaw, there are no AP classes available, no extra curricular activities besides FCCLA and yearbook. The high school humanities class is combined with another class so that it is met by the state department and all they do is sing a few songs for a Christmas program and one graduation song a year, this is not what Humanities is supposed to be. I witnessed at a basketball game students removing jerseys and giving hand gestures to the crowd. This truly is a school with problems. Even the amount of students at the school is a lie. They are not even close to 282 students. I would say 150 K-12 at the most.

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.
