Oklahoma School District Report Cards

We were looking at new places to live and the question of schools came up. I looked  around and found the State of Oklahoma A-F Report Cards.

Take this with a grain of salt, however. The school district with the top two elementary schools in the whole state (#1 and #2) are in Jenks, which only receives a B+. Check out how the report cards are calculated before making any big life decisions – and verify the report card, I could have messed something up.
