Posted December 1, 2009

My daughter attends Kindergarten at Spencer and I absolutely love it! They aren't as technologically advanced as other schools but they make up for it in so many other ways. They pay close attention to the needs of the students and the wants of the parents. My daughter starting reading over the summer and I was worried that the teachers might try to hold her back until the other students could catch up, but instead my daughter's teacher send home book every two weeks that challenges her and helps her with different phonic skills.

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.
