I went to this school and I absolutely enjoyed it. :) There was an indoor swimming pool, a football field, and track. The teachers were good at keeping their students in line, so no annoying children! On Halloween the middles schoolers would carve pumpkins. The cafeteria food was also nutritious and great tasting. There would also be an AR store at the end of the year that the students could buy from with their book points from reading.

I have more than one child in this school, and I have been very pleased with the education they are receiving there. Turpin is far ahead of the state on test scores, the school and the community has excellent school spirit, and the faculty and administration is doing a good job handling their jobs. There are a few teachers that are not the best, but they seem to be the exception, not the rule. My children have received very personalized instruction, which is definately helping them in their early years. And the main point for me at this point is the test scores. I have no idea what the first reviewer is talking about. Apparently they have a personal problem. There are some really bad schools out there, but Turpin is NOT one of them.

My foster children and step child enjoyed this school. There are small classes and the kids get the individual attention they often need.

I absolutely do not recommend this school to anyone. The worst administration, faculty and community I have ever had to deal with.

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.
