At Putnam City Public Schools, I enjoyed the caring atmosphere that was almost always provided. From elementary school up until high school, I felt as though I always had teachers that truly cared about my education. I also was introduced to some great programs, such as: sports, FCA, and Student council. These programs helped sculpt me into the person I am today by providing me with great opportunities, mentors, and friends. The staff, especially in high school, were very admirable. They always made it easy to look forward to class and walk away each day making me feel as though I was prospering as a student and a person.

The involvement is what makes this school shine, everyone for the most part participates in school events and it feels like a family. Everyone is there to lend a hand when need. The teachers will use whatever resource they have to help the student out and it has been really helpful being at the school for scholarships and knowing what is expected for college. High school can be one of the most influential part of our growth, and learning with my peers has helped me develop to be a more involved person and step out of my comfort zone. One of things that I wished changed is the administration. Teachers should be provided the resources and economic development for their life. Oklahoma is rank lowest for education and for funding. So a change in how the administration is organized and the governments involvment with taxing the oil may be the solution for providing a substantial amount of money for the schools.
My favorite aspect of Putnam City Schools is the diversity. The ratio of cultures and races is amazing to see. I went to one of the lowest income area elemenatry schools, but my education was not compromised. I'm ranked 5th in my class with a high ACT score and abundant involvement. The leadership oppertunities, especially in high school provided me with a niche. Some improvment could be done inside the classroom, especially in High Schools, to ensure teachers are student ready teachers with classroom control and etiquette.
