Muldrow Middle School is located in Eastern Oklahoma's Sequoyah County and is part of the Cherokee Nation. The ethnicity of our students is primarily Caucasian and Native American. More than 70% of our students qualify for free and reduced meals. Many of our students live in rural areas with limited or no internet access.
The success of our students is a reflection of a shared vision, the collaborative relationship of our staff, and our success in communicating and collaborating with our parents. We endeavor to maintain a climate of excellence in teaching, learning, and behavior. We frequently communicate our high expectations for student learning and behavior, staff performance, ethical behavior, and professional practice. With technology playing a key role in education, we are continually striving to effectively overcome these challenges. Using professional development strategies provided by the Gear Up for My Success Grant through the K20 Center at the University of Oklahoma, we work as a team to develop common assessments, frequently review student achievement, and deliver differentiated, challenging, and engaging academic instruction.
Though not a requirement, students who have not shown mastery in core curricular areas are encouraged to take advantage of smaller co-teaching classes in deficient areas and to take part in the after-school PAWS (Providing Academics With Support) program. This 21st Century Community Learning Centers Grant program provides students with tutoring and enrichment activities that enhance learning in a supportive environment. Students are engaged in hands-on activities to reinforce the academic concepts they learn throughout the year.
