Oklahoma School Develops Character and Academic Results
Muskogee High School, Muskogee, OK
Muskogee High School is celebrated by its community as the first-ever Oklahoma State and National School of Character. The Muskogee Roughers are now on the ROAD (Respect, Opportunity, Achievement, Determination) to Success because of the synergy that character development has created. The Advocacy program, initiated in 2008-09, has become a powerful connector that supports a sense of security and belonging among a highly diverse student population. Students feel cared for, and as a result, academic achievement is up and disciplinary referrals are down. Intentional opportunities to serve can be found everywhere at MHS, and 40 different student groups and organizations offer something for everyone.
