I attended Southeast High School from the years 2014-2018. I graduated from what I would call one of the best schools in the district. The teachers that I experienced always found a way to make learning fun. I learned a lot during my high school years and also achieved many things. They make extra curricular activities so easy to be involved in. I was involved in almost everything and held an office position in many of these activities. My senior class and I were very close. We considered each other family. I love Southeast High School. Once a Spartan, always a Spartan!

Both of my sons have attended elementary, middle and high school in the Oklahoma City Public School District. They have been supported by their various Teachers, Coaches, and Administrators throughout their academic careers. Our sons also know that they each have had the unconditional support of their father and I because we have attended every Parent/Teacher Conference. We have kept the lines of communication open so that the Teachers know that we support what they are doing in the classrooms and what the Coaches are doing on the sports field. Our experience with the Oklahoma City Public School District has been a good one!
My Overall experience with Oklahoma City public School, were not the best. I went there all throughout my years of schooling. I was not prepared for college at all. My lack of education that made me take a lot of remedial classes. I was not up to par, like all the other beginning college student. In high school was in the top ten percent of my class. So I wasn't because I wasn't paying attention. The Curriculum that they were teaching us was so outdated, they were grades behind. They have borders from keeping you going to other school around because I didn't live in the rounded area for the better education I need. They need to be college prep like all the other school districts, better facitilies as well. The building of my high school was smaller than the Elementary and the middle school. The building was moldy and not well isolated. The bathroom were old and rusty. The community lacks in participation because the building are so old. your could barely seat down in the big room.
