Sooner Elementary School Reviews
Parents aren't welcome. Front desk is condescending and incredibly rude.
I wouldn't recommend this school to my worst enemy. Their front staff will interrupt you, raise their voice at you, ignore and verbally bash you. The simplest task is made difficult. I walked out of there crying on several occasions because of the shocking treatment I received from the front office staff. I expect to be treated with dignity and respect by those that I am supposed to be partnered with in my children's education. I spoke to the principal about this and nothing was done. The district was just as horrible to me when I tried to resolve this matter, when I wasn't outright ignored. They spoke about God in the class and my daughter was attacked for her beliefs. The lack of communication is just shameful too. They cancelled/re-opened school without letting anyone know. I am frequently given last minute lists for school projects. The list of negatives goes on and on . Avoid them at all cost and check out the other reviews on the internet. It seems I should have done more research before I enrolled my daughter. Definitely check out other schools in the area.
Very Pleased Parent
I have three children attending Sooner Elementary and I am a pleased parent. My kids are excelling in their classes and enjoy going each day. I have found the staff to be pleasant and inviting. The school recently changed principals and the change is evident. The new principal, (Mr. Mac, as the kids affectionately call him) has done a superb job of building a rapport with the kids and parents alike. He even started a WATCH DOG program where dads patrol the halls and help out during school hours. Sooner Roadrunners are top notch and always working to improve and strive for excellence.
This is a horrible school. We have owned the house where we currently live for 13 years. Our 7 year old son went to private pre-school and kindergarten. We decided that for first grade, he could go to Sooner because it was closer because it is less then a mile away, it is free and it is in the Moore School District so it couldn't be bad. We were SOOO wrong. He started going there in the fall of 2010. His teacher was gone at least three days a week for the three months that he attended Sooner. His class usually had a different substitute when she was gone so there was no continuity at all. The children cannot talk in the hallways and they get in trouble for talking during lunch, let me say that again DURING LUNCH. If you get in trouble you have to sit out of recess and not talk. When he would finish his work, he would go try to help another kid in his class if they were having a hard time with some work, since that is what they did when he went to the private school, and of course he got in trouble. Then they called my husband and I one morning and said that we had to come to the school right away. They told us that he had ADHD and we need to put him on medicine. They had not done any testing for it at all, they just told us that. We decided to put him into a different private school that is more expensive then the first one and is 30 miles away because it is a much better school. We had to hold him back since he didn't learn anything for four months and I drive at least an hour a day (sometime two) to avoid having him go to that school. I have other friends who have moved out of the school area because it so bad. A teacher that my friend's son had this year would call him names and go up to him and pinch him on the neck. He is a nice kid but even if he wasn't, no teacher should do that. AVOID THIS SCHOOL AT ALL COSTS!!!
I don't think Sooner Elementary is a good school at all, My boys came from Traub elementray and i always felt welcome. I do not save box tops for Sooner.I have nothing nice to say about the school but Please read as many reviews as you can before concedering this school for your child! There are alot of other places you can get more reviews about this school.
