PREPARED FOR COLLEGE

"If it weren't for the opportunities I received, I would not have learned to work as hard as I do now. I am prepared for college and my college applications have had a higher response because my school is known nationally. My school has become a beacon of hope in the state of Oklahoma, as students battle for a better future and education."

QUALITY EDUCATION

"I graduated several years ago. At the time I knew I had a quality education but only recently as a college graduate, two years into my profession do I realize how important my education has been to my success. The teachers, administration and students is what makes it so special. You will not find other public school as well run as these schools. "

–Application School Graduate

ACADEMIC EXPECTATIONS

"I'm a band major and I love it! I think the reason why this school is so good is the expectations on academics. You have more homework and more music to practice and the teachers expect it to be done. It's not an unreasonable amount, but you do need to work harder. They will prepare you for college and the teachers are wonderful and the students are accepting.
