Immersion students score exceedingly well on all of the state and district-mandated standardized tests, with composite scores consistently at the 80th
percentile or higher on the Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests.
Students continue to demonstrate both high academic achievement and leadership qualities at the middle school level. A super-majority (>80%) of former EIS students achieve honor roll status for academic performance at the middle school level. For the past two years at Thoreau Demonstration Academy, former EIS students have won 1st
place in the all-city Martin Luther King Essay Contest, as well as 1st
place in the all-school spelling bee.
Measures of Student Success
- Eisenhower is the top-performing school in the State of Ok, winning the Academic Achievement Awards based on a perfect Academic performance Index (API) 4 years in a row (2006-2009).
- More than 80% of the 5th grade students will earn Honor Roll recognition at the middle school level each year.
- EIS French Immersion students participate in the National Concours (French National Exam), and each year a number of EIS students (and former EIS students at the middle school and high school levels) rank in the top 10 national rankings. This is a test taken by thousands of immersion students across the country.
- Fifth grade students travel as ambassadors in our school’s academic exchange programs with Spain, Costa Rice, France and Canada. These students sit in class in a French or Spanish school and fully participate in the curriculum.
- More Eisenhower students place in the District Speech Arts Festival than from any of the other 55 elementary schools in the Tulsa Public School District.
- Students develop a broader, international mind set at EIS. For example, when learning to sing The Grand ‘Ole Flag, an EIS 5th grader remarked in class, “How do we know this is about the American flag? It just says red, white and blue flag and many countries have red, white and blue flags.” Then he proceeded to name of few of those countries for the music teacher. The staff thought this was a huge measure of success in critical thinking and international attitudes!
