Eisenhower Elementary School is a student-centered community that strives to provide a strong academic curriculum for its multicultural student population. We are proud to say that our students consistently perform at or near the top range in most subjects on the Oklahoma Curriculum Tests yearly. Eisenhower is a Literacy First Phase IV model school. Literacy First is a research-based, systematic, systemic and comprehensive reform process that accelerates reading achievement of all students in grades PreK to 12. This nationally validated process is approved for use and implemented in Reading First schools, as well as in Comprehensive School Reform grant schools with proven success (literacyfirst.com).

SCHOOL SONG LYRICS:
Here's to the school where we like to go Here's to the school that's the best we know; Eisenhower, we love you, Hip, hip, hooray for the gray and blue. We have all the other schools beat by a mile, And we've had it on them for a good long while; So let's be up and doing, it's our best rule, Cheering loud and long for Eisenhower school. YES. IKE!
