I have lived in Choctaw for my entire life and I have had wonderful experiences here. I attend Choctaw High School and the staff and students are always warm and welcoming. The drama program alone at the high school, with 13 state championships at the time of this review, reflects the excellence of Choctaw High School. There is a bit of a trash problem on the campus, but many clubs and organizations at the school are making committed efforts to solve the issue.

I have lived in Choctaw for about 9 years now and i have never had any problems with it. I love how it's not too big but its not too small and mostly everyone knows each other and is kind to one another. I lived in Moore for the first few years of my life and it is way too populated and crowded and it's always busy. I will definitely be living in choctaw for as long as i can!
Choctaw Oklahoma is a smaller town then say Oklahoma City, But the community here is very active and there is usually something new going on. I like the comfortable living spaces and freedom to walk around without fear due to most people being very friendly. I would like to see the public education system changed a bit in order to help students in better categories as well as good housing markets as most of the houses here are fixer-uppers.
