Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests (OCCT)

In 2008-2009 Oklahoma used the Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests (OCCT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math. Students in grade 5 were also tested in writing, science and social studies. Students in grade 7 were tested in geography, and students in grade 8 were tested in writing, science and U.S. history. The results for reading, math, science and social studies are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. 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.

    Great school Great location. High class citizens and students. Very active athletic and music progams.

    The school is like a prison there are no windows except for the cafeteria. The rooms are small and crowded and the school officials are not envolved. The only good thing I can say is that they are updating the school and adding on at this time and that the vocal music teacher for the school year of 96-97 was one of the best I have ever seen he did a great job!
