EPS is a school district on the rise, serving more than 7,900 students in a supportive community of 50,000. District enrollment has increased by 1,600 students in ten years and is expected to grow by another 1,500 students by 2023.
District Administration Magazine recently named EPS a national District of Distinction for its unique and effective community partnerships. In 2014, we completed $99 million of renovations and construction across
the district, including the addition of two new elementary schools. Local voters generously approved in 2016 another $93 million to provide schools with more classrooms, safer entrances, improved technology and facilities to meet the needs of students in athletics and fine arts.
The district promotes innovative learning and the use of technology, offering iPads, Chromebooks and SMARTBoards. The latest bond issue also provided 1:1 devices for all students.
In 2013, EPS, a National Math and Science Initiative district, opened its University Center on the Enid High campus. With an extensive slate of college dual credit and Advanced Placement courses, its academic
program can save students more than $30,000 in college expenses. The school’s AP enrollment has quadrupled in the last few years.
Our youngest students benefit from developmentally appropriate full-day Pre-K classes, including an intergenerational program. A local fundraising campaign and foundation grant garnered $250,000 to create
Enid’s first early childhood center. We also have a learning lab for four-year-old students on the campus of NWOSU-Enid, with more classrooms slated for construction.
The heart and soul of our district is our highly effective teaching staff and support team. Through Professional Learning Communities, they continue to strengthen instruction and encourage development – for themselves and for students.
In addition to a dynamic public school foundation, the district has a significant number of volunteers who help make our schools better places to learn. In the last six years, the community has donated more than $6.5 million in private funds to EPS for special projects.
In addition to a dynamic academic program, the district has dozens of programs for students to choose from in the areas of athletic, visual arts, performing arts and music. From guitar program to the gridiron, there is truly something for every interest and talent. Welcome to Enid Public Schools! We’re glad you’re here!
