Pocola is one of the worst elementary schools I have came in contact with. My son who is in Pre-K has gotten hurt a few times. They don't notify my why, how, or anything. I find out when he gets home. My daughter who is in 3rd grade also goes there and I was under the assumption no child left behind, but seems to me that she is being overlooked by her teacher. The school where they went before the teachers communicate more with the children and the parents. This school has tried and almost to the point of bullying me to let them spank my children. I have never seen or heard of a school lacking in education than I have since I've came in contact with this school. I can't wait to move just to get them out of this school.

Pocola Elementary is very poor and the principle they have at this time has had conflicts with nearly every students parents myself included. The Elementary is ran like a prison and the child has no room for using imagination they beg parents to get involved in your childs education and when you do Ms. Anderson has a problem with it if your child has any type of chance of accelling in his or hers person. She has pushed to get all sports took out of the school. So, word for wise for parents looking at this district I would consider talking to other elementary students parents first. This principle has pushed some dang good teachers from the schools.
