No band, no soccer, no choir, no after school program's, no after school tutoring, no gifted and talented programs, no pep club, no types of show and tell or arts programs, pitiful special education program, no plays or programs put on by students, no music classes for elementary students, there are only 150 kids or less from Pre-k thru 12th grade total instead of 250 they say they have and this school offers nothing but the bare minimum to get by. Why is it that all of the graduating seniors the last few years that go on to college must enroll in remedial English and math classes?

Bullying and harrassment is a major problem in both the high school and elementary and the teachers are the biggest offenders. Teachers in high school post facebook messages talking trash about the kids and their parents. There has been an entire generation of children ruined by these people.

My child has been going to school there for a while. I think the teachers are tough but fair. They just started a new acedemic program that my child is in. There is many sports an acedemic programs to choose from. The most parents except a few don't wanna get involved. But it's a small school but the kids fet more of a one on one learning experience. There's no bulling or racism. I love the school!

The teachers are there for just a paycheck. I had so much trouble getting my child an education, each year is a battle. The teachers in the 5th and 6th grade classes are extreamly hard to work with and scream, demoralize, and single out their students in front of the whole class. When brought to the attention of the Superintendent and Principal nothing ever comes about the situation. This has been going on for nine years that I have known of.

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.
