The Tahlequah school district in Oklahoma consists of 6 schools, including 4 elementary schools, 1 middle school, and 1 high school, serving a diverse student population with a significant Native American representation. While the schools generally perform better than the state averages in English Language Arts (ELA) and math, there are notable differences in their academic performance and overall quality.

Among the standout schools, Heritage Elementary School and Tahlequah High School are the highest-ranked in the district, with both earning a 4-out-of-5-star rating from SchoolDigger. Heritage Elementary outperforms the district and state averages in several key test score metrics, while Tahlequah High School's 11th-grade ELA and U.S. History proficiency rates also exceed the state averages. However, Tahlequah High School's math proficiency is lower than the state average, suggesting an area for improvement.

The data also reveals that the schools in the Tahlequah district have high rates of free and reduced-price lunch recipients, ranging from 57.92% at Tahlequah High School to 100% at Sequoyah Elementary School, which serves only pre-kindergarten students. This suggests that socioeconomic factors may play a significant role in student performance, and the district could benefit from identifying and replicating the successful practices of its top-performing schools to support the growth and development of all students.
