This school is awesome for the most part. This was my daughters first year there and she was succeeded and continues more forward while making the Honor Roll, and participating in several activities that the school offers. Hopefully the school will remain open with the current staff (minus the 6 & 7th grade Geography teacher) and students. The Vice Principals are AWESOME (special kudos to Mr Wilson). I would rate "Teach Quality" a 5, but due to one teacher the Geography teacher for the 6th grade and his lack of enthusiam, and lack of passion, unwillingness to communicate in an effective mannor and unablity to motivate deems me to lower the score, which is truly unfair to all of the other teachers and there that reach out to their students and have a passion for what they teach.

This school isn't for everybody, but my child is thriving there. The principal and teachers communicate with me regularly. If there is a problem at school. it is handled quickly. I have been pleasantly surprised by this school. There are rules to be followed, but everyone is allowed to be "themselves", which is so refreshing during the middle school years.

This is by far the worst school any of my children have ever attended. My 7th grader transfered in from an out of state school, when transferring in she had all a's and b's 1-d in math. By her next semester she had all f's. I called the school, and asked for homework, so i can see the area's she needs help in. I can't hire a tudor, or take her to the sylvan learning center if i don't know what she's doing in school. I talked to the vp, and she assured me she would send homework home, 2 weeks later still no homework. I went up to the school, where they told me to attend a parent teacher confrense. I arrived, but the teacher didn't. I called yet again, to beg for homework, 2 months later, and my daughter has never brought homework home. Find a better school!

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.
