5 star school w/ 4th grade teacher workin on a PHD. must be dedicated to the young students. Really dont see such a highly educated individual stayin a 4th grade teacher when oppurtunities of being a superintendant is available. Hooray to the 4th grade teacher and staff.

Hands down best in area. All around great school. I attended this school my entire elementary school life and wouldn't have changed a thing. My six year old now attends Limestone and all the great people are still there and remembered me when I went to enroll my daughter her first year. The teachers care and the students genuinely feel it. Limestone has changed over the past twenty years, but from what I can tell it has only continued to improve.

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.
