Sasakwa High School offers all of the subject areas to prepare any student for college, vocational or life. Including Advanced Placement classes with college credit. The Administration, faculty and staff do an excellent job. This is a small school with a very big heart.

Sasakwa is a very good school. Our students have every opportunity to succeed. The teachers genuinely care about the students, and the Administration is fair and effective. My children graduated from Sasakwa, and graduated from college just as prepared, if not better than any other student from larger schools.

the student has all the tools necessary to succeed. a compentent faculty, and good leadership. the school could use some more support from the parents, or more involvement. has the possibility to become more compeditive in sports with some extra time spent teaching.

The school has a somewhat good environment. They could use a better choice of courses for the students, to prepare them for college. They do have 2 Advanced Placement Courses. (Biology and Government) They need more teachers,therefore not piling courses on the few full-time ones they have. They need a steady coach so they can build their athletic dept. The athletes want and deserve a coach to be there off-season to work with them during the summer, etc. The teams suffer b/c they aren't allowed to practice off-season sports while another season is going. They don't have very many clubs or organizations for the students, therefore the students are just there during the day. Teachers are well qualified and teach great in the classroom for the most part.

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.
