Jenks Public Schools: This Is Who We Are
Founded in 1908, Jenks Public Schools encompasses the city of Jenks on the west side of the Arkansas River, and portions of South Tulsa on the east side of the Arkansas River. The District is made up of 10 distinct school sites with an overall enrollment of 12,600 students and approximately 1,600 staff members.
On the surface, school districts have plenty in common. So what sets Jenks apart? Along with the character and caliber of our employees, it is our unwavering belief in continuous improvement, and the commitment to creating opportunities for every student in every grade level. From the array of professional development experiences offered to our staff members, to providing STEM Learning Labs for students at every school site, we are consistently challenging ourselves to be forward-thinking and innovative in our approach to education. Continuous improvement means setting up our students for success at every turn. It means providing one-of-a-kind experiences to our students by utilizing the latest technology, adapting teaching tactics to help students achieve college and career readiness, and identifying teachers who can engage and inspire their students. The standards here are lofty. The expectations are high.
