I graduated from Rogers in 1965. To the faculty and coaches, I would say if you want to return Rogers to it's former glory you must instill pride as a Roper in the students. How do you do that? by visiting the middle schools. Let those kids know you are aware of them and they should consider themselves Ropers NOW. Let them know the glorious history of this school and that even the Alumni are interested in them. Tell them to prepare everyday now, for a revolution. Tell them, as Ropers they WILL excel in every area-----acedemics, sports, ALL extracuricular activities. They will have a pride in themselves and their school like no other. Ropers are winners always. We overcome. We rise above. We see victory in every endevor. We are second to none. This attitude doesn't begin the first year at Rogers, nor does it end with graduation. We become top quality through commitment and never accepting second best for ourselves. ---Danny---

I am an old student of Rogers and I loved that school I would still go there if I didn't move to school my school now likes to think of itself as an academy which it is but I learned so much better in oklahoma at Rogers I was at the top of all my classes here I struggle to keep up because they try to teach us so much in a short amount of time we learn it at that time but over 75% of the kids at my school will tell you they do not remember the work we did in first semester that terrible learning at the pace I learned at in Oklahoma helped me to retain the information better I learned the same information just at a better pace the school was fun it had good ways to discipline the students I loved that school

As a parent of a Rogers student, I am concerned about the school. Mr Burr and a majority of the teachers are supportive and involved. The problem is the lack of parental involvement.

as a student, senior, and daughter of a teacher, I switched from jenks to rogers and found I thrive here. the faculty is a caring group of individuals. The course work isn't what I would consider difficult, but if any student fails it would be mostly due to a lack of intrust or the social environment. Our principle, Mr. Burr. has done so much to help mold our school into a new form and our teachers and students pave the way for newfound glory. I can only hope that more people get to see this side of Rogers. As for parent involvement. Mostly minimum. but there are a few who do care about their kids, and teachers are more than willing to communicate and resolve issues. I love it here. & I look forward to everyday.

Quality of academic programs is good. Availability of music, art, sports and other extracurricular activities is good. Level of parent involvement not sure.

I'm not a parent, but I am a proud alumni of Will Rogers High school. I was accepted to Booker T. Washington but chose Rogers instead because of the honors classes offered there. Other parents and students may disagree with me on feeling this way, but I believe that if a student truly wants to learn they can do it anywhere. The teachers at Will Rogers knew I honestly wanted to learn and were willing to help me out in any possible way, plus the education I got there helped me out a great deal. I graduated as Validictorian at Will Rogers and received many scholarships to different colleges. I am now very successful in my occupation, and I believe that going to Will Rogers high school is a big contributor to my accomplishments.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 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.
