I am an elementary principal in Indiana. my grandson is a PreK student in this school. I have visited this school several times as a grandparent. I have been very pleased that they are very child centered and have many programs in place to meet the social and academic needs of students. Teachers are outside of their doors each day greeting students and the principal is highly accessible. My grandson's teacher is extremely approachable and has had a great amount of professional development. She has gone above and beyond to work with my grandson who is the youngest in the class. Children in the school are involved in their school day by raising the flag, being a safety patrol, and hosting special events. The principal is well versed in data and standards based instruction. I see many great happenings taking place at Key Elementary.

I have enjoyed having my child at this school since pre-K. She has loved every teacher. My husband and I have felt the same way. The principal and staff have always listened to any concerns that I have ever had with a caring heart. My second child will be starting Key soon and she can't wait. On another note, the PTA is really a great place to meet other parents and get involoved in the school.

At first I would have agreed with the other reviewers of this school, but one teacher was so hard on my son that his grades began to drop and have continued to drop as the teacher followed him from one grade to the next and in a meeting that was held with said teacher, the principal and several other teachers this teacher lied to my face about the many notes and messages I had sent for the teacher to call me to discuss my son. I am taking both of my children out of this school, not just because of this one teacher but also because of the condescending attitude of the principal when I tried to voice my concerns.

Our children have been in five school systems over the past ten years, including private, Christian, and public school. Key Elementary is by far the best school experience that we have had. My husband and I know without a doubt that we have allies in the teachers that instruct our children and have been thrilled with the individual attention that they have received from all of the faculty. We've been at Key for three years now and hope to finish out our elementary years with our children under the loving guidance of the creative, personable, and intelligent teachers of Key. We feel as if our children spend each day with family and want to keep it that way!

This may be the best school in the district. We have been at Key since my oldest was in pre-K. That was SEVEN years ago. The teachers have watched my kids grow and flourish. I am SOOOOO happy to finally have my youngest in Mrs. Bush's Kindergarten.

Absolutely wonderful! My son has really came along ways since he enrolled in this school. This school is the best thing that has ever happened to him! Mrs. Colburn is the best teacher I have ever met! The office staff is so nice and even the bus driver cares alot for the children. I couldn't ask for a better place for my child to spend his childhood days!

I attended Key from Kindergarten through 5th grade. I am now a Senior in high school and I work with 1st graders 3 days a week. The teachers at Key show tremendous support for their students. They are always doing everything they can to help a student learn and succeed.

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.
