“I love how the teachers want to get to know each student as a person and not just another name on an enrollment form.”
--- Sarah Tottress, mother of three Sapulpa Public Schools students. She and her family moved into the district in the spring of 2019.

“I love the teachers and their personalities. It’s fun having teachers you can trust.”
--- Ava Pray, 9th grade Sapulpa Junior High School student.

“The teachers are better [here] and they push you to your very best.”
--- Ramiyah Bruner, 5th grader who is in her first year at Jefferson Heights Elementary.

Those are just a few of the parents and students who will tell you why they chose to come to school in the Sapulpa Public Schools district. We have four elementary schools, a middle school, junior high, alternative academy, and high school and some of the best programs for students in northeast Oklahoma. If you find yourself asking, "Why Sapulpa?," well, there are plenty of reasons.

Why Sapulpa?

Sapulpa is a tight-knit community that embraces our schools and our students. The support we receive is second to none and means the world to our students, faculty, and staff. You will be amazed when you see the streets lined with people during the Homecoming parade. The schools are the focus of this city.

Why Sapulpa?

Sapulpa Public Schools was one of only three districts in the northeastern part of the state to have three elementary schools INCREASE their report card grades from the previous year. Freedom Elementary is one of just two elementary schools in NE Oklahoma to earn an A, while Jefferson Heights Elementary jumped two letter grades, earning a B. Liberty Elementary improved to a C and Holmes Park maintained its B grade from the previous report card. Our secondary schools are maintaining their grades and have developed improvement plans, and put those plans into action, to help our students grow.

Why Sapulpa?

We offer a virtual program. If your child learns better at home, we have the ability to provide that to your student. Sapulpa Virtual Academy is a blended approach to education that includes full or partial online delivery of instruction with an element of student control over the time, place, path, and/or pace of learning. And, students have the option to enroll in an elective such as athletics or fine arts so that they don’t have to miss out on being part of a team or school spirit.

Why Sapulpa?

Our Special Education Department is first class. During 2019-2020, four of the eight teachers chosen as Teacher of the Year are Special Education teachers, Danielle Nagel, who teaches Special Ed Science and English, was named District Teacher of the Year. We have a job training program in which secondary students learn skills that can help them gain employment after graduation. If your child needs to be on an Individualized Education Program, we have the resources to help so your child doesn’t feel left behind.

Why Sapulpa?

We take care of our less fortunate students when they’re not in school. Our pantry provides food to those children. They receive a bag each week to help them get through the weekend and they receive bags for those times when we’re out on extended breaks. During the summer, our Mobile Book Bus, in partnership with Caring Community Friends, travels the city providing books for checkout as well as take-home bagged meals and snacks. We want to plenish the minds and the bellies of our students all year long.

Why Sapulpa?

Our athletic programs are very competitive. Boys basketball made it to the state tournament in 2019. Girls soccer made it to state in 2018 and 2019. Our Cross Country program consistently places student-athletes in the state competition. Our football program made the playoffs in 2018 and 2019. Our Ping Pings have brought home at least one state title each year since 2013. Our golf program has an indoor facility. Our tennis program has a new court.

Why Sapulpa?

The Class of 2019 earned more than $2,000,000 in scholarships to continue their education.

Now, we can continue to go on and on but after reading all of that, are you ready? Don’t hesitate to contact our Enrollment Center if you have any questions about enrolling or transferring your child to Sapulpa. We look forward to hearing from you and for your child to be #ChieftainStrong.

One final note. Hear from alumni of our schools...
