Jenks has great schools and they offer a lot of different opportunities and classes. Jenks is known to have fantastic sports programs as well. All of the schools in Jenks are also very well equipped. The Jenks High School has their own pool and planetarium. Jenks Public Schools just built a new elementary school as well. One last aspect is cleanliness. There is virtually no air pollution and the roads are easy to travel on. All in all, Jenks is a great place to live!

Still the small town feel even as the population grows! The school system is one of the best around, as Oklahoma suffers from poor school quality in general Jenks shines bright and is a becon for other public schools. The down town area is fun and inviting with things from antique shopping to axe throwing store. There is a nice range of eateries to choose from. We even boast a large aquirum. The police are effective without being militant, the officers are kind and respectful of the public. I find the fire department to be a little laggimg in their response time, but their new Fire Department has been moved outside of the main area of town.
Jenks is a very peaceful neighbourhood, the neighbourhood is safe and filled with very kind people. Although, the weather changes quite frequently.
