About our school…

Welcome to West Elementary!   Students who reside on the west side of the Arkansas River in the Jenks School District attend West Elementary.   Our campus configuration is comprised of four classroom buildings and Grace Living Center, our intergenerational, multi-age pre-kindergarten and kindergarten program located at 711 North 5th Street in Jenks.  Building B houses our developmental three year old class and pre-kindergarten classes. After pre-kindergarten, students are assigned to Building A or D and remain in the same building for kindergarten, first and second grades. Building F is located across the street from the primary campus and houses third and fourth grades.

Our Practices…

West Elementary staff share a strong commitment to best practice instruction and desire to develop students who are critical, creative thinkers and problem solvers. West Elementary is entering its second year of candidacy as an International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Program (PYP)*. It’s an exciting continuous improvement opportunity for our staff, students, and families as we deepen our teaching with inquiry based instruction, grow in integrated concept-based teaching using IB’s organization framework of themes, extend possibilities for student leadership within our school community and in the larger community, connect with students globally, and continue our focus on the “Attitudes of Excellence” across all grade levels.

*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its three academic programmes:  the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), or the Diploma Programme (and in addition the IB Career-related Certificate). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
