The teachers and staff are doing an excellent job. Not only are the kids learning but they LIKE school!


Posted January 5, 2009

I have 3 kids that attend Cherokee and I personally think that it is one of the best schools in the district. The teachers are very caring and seem to be genuinally concerned about the children in the school. They don't hesitate to call you when there is a problem or if they just want to speak to you about your child and everyone is always greeted with a smile.

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.
