Best Public Schools in Fargo, OK


The city of Fargo, Oklahoma is home to two schools: Fargo Elementary School and Fargo High School. While both schools serve the Fargo community, Fargo Elementary School stands out as the stronger performer, with a higher statewide ranking, smaller class sizes, and lower per-student spending compared to the high school.

Fargo Elementary School has maintained a consistent 4-star rating from SchoolDigger for several years, indicating stable and strong academic performance. In contrast, Fargo High School's 11th-grade proficiency rates are relatively low, ranging from 7.1% in math to 50% in U.S. History. This disparity in academic achievement between the two schools may be partly attributed to the significant difference in per-student spending, with the elementary school spending $10,960 per student and the high school spending $24,273 per student.

Both schools serve a diverse student population, with a majority of White students and significant Hispanic and Native American representation. Additionally, both schools have high percentages of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, indicating that the Fargo community faces significant economic challenges. Understanding the unique needs and experiences of these diverse student groups, as well as addressing the root causes of the low performance at Fargo High School, could be valuable for the district in supporting the academic and social-emotional development of all students.
