Welcome to Okte Elementary School

Photo of Okte Elementary SchoolLocated in the southern part of the district, Okte Elementary School is one of four off-campus schools. It opened in 1973.


We envision a school in which staff, students and community:

  • focus on what we expect all students to learn, examine how we will know if they have learned it and know how we will respond if students have/have not learned.
  • create an environment that promotes and celebrates effective and on-going communication and respect.
  • develop and maintain our capacity to function as a professional learning community with a common purpose and clear goals.
  • encourage risk taking that promotes personal and academic growth.
  • embrace 21st century, project-based learning.
  • demonstrate a personal commitment to the academic success and general well-being of all students.
