Oklahoma City Public Schools Reviews

Both of my sons have attended elementary, middle and high school in the Oklahoma City Public School District. They have been supported by their various Teachers, Coaches, and Administrators throughout their academic careers. Our sons also know that they each have had the unconditional support of their father and I because we have attended every Parent/Teacher Conference. We have kept the lines of communication open so that the Teachers know that we support what they are doing in the classrooms and what the Coaches are doing on the sports field. Our experience with the Oklahoma City Public School District has been a good one!

Lets see how the new Superintendent will do/how long he will last. Lots of politics! Teachers and principals are constantly being moved around, leaving the public schools and going to the private and magnet schools, leaving a void and terrible teacher/student ratios. Classen SAS was the ONLY high school that changed to late school hours (because it does not have football?) causing students to severely adjust after school activities and after school work schedules. The school board needs to re-evaluate the impact this causes.
Oklahoma City Public Schools provided me with a diverse and inclusive high school experience and allowed me the safety to feel I could develop freely and without judgment. The ample artistic opportunities allowed me to discover and polish my passions and discover new ones. The faculty was overwhelmingly open-minded and dedicated to making sure their students felt protected and supported. While the administration and school board had their flaws during my 7 years in this district, their commitment to fostering a prosperous balance of artistic and academic extracurriculars was unwavering, even when faced with state governmental neglect and the 2018 OKC teacher strikes.
