Present administration excluding the Supertindent does not have a clue about their students. Let's start with the elementary principal , snotty short sited non-caring individual . Will try to put on a good show for parents, may I say the right ones, and gives thunder to the less fortunate ones in money an academically inclined . She has forgotten that she was once a special education teacher. The present time she is slaughting the environment to prove she can rule the roost. Teachers are on the edge,they know she will play one against the other by using the ploy it's your job as well. My kids are always telling me things she has done to teachers or classmates. I became courious and ask other parents an then ask teachers, I got no comment I could loose my job. Do you want your child in this atmosphere? I also found out that some of the classes will have 30+ students with part time aids. This principal needs to be watched by the community and school board we do not need to lose good teachers because she is a yes person to the high school principal. Again, do you want your child being seen over by this person. My kids have a choice Ardmore or Springer.

With a 6 out of 10 rating there is room for improvement. teachers go over subjects well, but the administration do not give the teachers enough latitude for creative teaching. it's hard on the teachers with 21 to 23 students in a class without an aid to assist them. with that many students slower students and brighter students suffer.

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.
