Cheyenne Middle School
2 Best Public Middle Schools in Oklahoma
- Edmond Public Schools, OK
Middle School Student: This school is like most, except for a few notable areas. It has an extensive and large TSA program, as well as a special class called Mustang Productions which is a combination film/media class.
Also, the eighth graders get personal laptops. Next year (2018), the seventh graders will as well, and then the year after, so will the sixth years.
The biggest drawback is lack of teachers. Class sizes are ok. But due to the lack of willing teachers in Oklahoma , schools struggle to attract teachers. Thus Cheyenne has a large amount of average-subpar teachers- the bottom of the barrel. Don't get me wrong, there are some FANTASTIC teachers (Mrs. Macrory comes to mind) but there are a lot of second-stringers. Some are brand new- and I don't mean out of college.
There are people who have never taught a day in their life who were roped in at the last second this year. Only a few teachers are truly bad, and only a few great. Most are average- very average, indeed.

Roanoke Catholic School

- PK, K-12
Senior: Roanoke Catholic is a school that teaches students belong the classroom and prepares them for either college. In the past years, 100 percent of Catholic seniors have attended college and this year the seniors have received over 2.5 million in scholarships. I started Roanoke Catholic two years ago and it was a big change coming from public school. In public schools you could slide by without doing your homework, but at Roanoke Catholic all work is required and graded as a test grade. Roanoke Catholic does not let you fall through the cracks. I also must say the food is outstanding!!
One thing I really did not like were the uniforms. In public school you basically wore what you want, but not in private school. My first year the gentlemen had to wear a shirt and tie during the winter and in the summer a polo shirt with the school’s logo and khaki pants or shorts. This year they changed the dress code to where gentlemen could wear the polo shirt and khaki pants all year around.
