I taught at Disney for two years and can tell you that I have never worked with a better staff. Yes, it is diverse, and it does have more than 97% of the families on free lunch programs. The test scores are important, as with all public schools. They show that the students are learnig what they need to know. Disney was the second most improved school in OK during the 2007-2008 school year.

I think Disney is a great school. My children came from a school that was in the country, so I love that fact that it is so diverse. The staff is great, and I love the principle. This is a very big school, with all different income levels, so there are alot of families involvd in the school lunch program, but I don't think that a big deal. They do want you to fill out the information for it, too, because if more than 97% of the people fill it out they could all get free food, like they do for breakfast. They really cre about the kids and my girls are doing really well.

The teachers are nice, but the scores aren't. I'm also not happy that so many kids are on the school lunch program. They really push this program at Disney.

I feel Disney Elementary School like many other schools focus on teaching for the national standard test, instead focusing on the core subjects. If a child learns their core subjects, than everything else is can be learn, because they would have a strong educational foundation. I think No Child Left Behind program is failing many kids. I don t believe it s the staff or the teachers at Disney Elementary School are poor educators. I believe the guidelines and polices they have to follow are preventing them from being effective educators. I can t put all the blame on the school, because I not the best parent in supporting my child s education

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.
