I currently go to BTW and I think its a great school. They give you a great balance so that our learning environment is the best that it could be. Our new building also helps us a great deal with the new equipment. BTW pride includes the diversity, cirriculum, and athletics. The diversity really did open my eyes to people that were different from me and I think BTW not only prepares you educationally, but it prepares you for issues in life, such as diversity. I love BTW and would not want to be any where else.

Not as a parent, but as a graduate of BTW and a college senior, I have to say that BTW provided me with an excellent education. Classes were difficult but compelling and the diversity of the campus really prepares any student for being open-minded and tolerant. Although it is possible to leave BTW without having tried too hard, it is easy to recieve a great education at this school. I have found the saying, 'You get out what you put in' to be exceptionally true of BTW. For a student that is highly motivated and wants to get the most out of their high school years, there isn't a better environment!

This is the best school in Oklahoma. Not only do we excel in everything from sports to academics, but we are extremely diverse and everybody loves that.

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.
