I've nothing but good to say about Poteau schools. Maybe an one of thoise overworked teachers was a little rude, at times, but who isn't? Apparently, they are far more concerned with giving a quality education, than with pampering every parent who believes they and their spoiled children deserve royal treatment. Because of the solid educational foundation I was given in the Poteau schools (including Pansy Kidd), I was able to successfully complete the work required to receive all 3 of my degrees. Thank you Poteau, for being willing to invest in the future of our area young people!

personally i think that the middle school is the worst school in poteau. the principle is rude the assistant principle is nice hes respectful and will work with you. a couple of the 6th grade teachers in particular are VERY rude and i would not have them teaching anyone i know unless they straighten UP. now then i have to say i think the best teacher there is MR. D hes very good at what he does and im sure could go on to be much more at a DECENT school. now then i think the english teacher for 7th grade could help out a little more but she is doing OKAY i guess. the social studies teacher in 6th grade needs to be more respectful to her students she acts like shes better then them. i will not say her name because theres no reason to cause conflict after all im only stating my opinion right? if i have to rate out of 5 i rate 2. lucky to get that.

My daughter is in 7th grade this year at PKMS. Her only complaint was that she only had athletics two or three days a week last year. She loves being in band and athletics and her teachers are terrific. They always return my phone calls/emails and are willing to work with my daughter to help her achieve what I know she is capable of doing. The only reason I can't give PKMS 5 stars is because of the Day 1/Day 2 athletics program.

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.
