Western Heights Public Schools is a small independent school district located on the southwest side of Oklahoma City. Our 3,600+ students are housed in four elementary (PK-4) buildings, one intermediate school (5-6), one middle school (7-8), one 9th Grade Center (9) and one high school (10-12). The District is small enough for us to know our students and large enough to provide exciting opportunities for the staff and students. For example, Western Heights has implemented a tremendous technology initiative. 
     Teachers, parents, and administrators operate on a continual school improvement process. Site level teams identify indicators of student success and areas which need attention. Plans are continually monitored and revised to correspond to student needs. Western Heights provides accelerated classes, honors classes, remedial classes, an inclusive special education environment, alternative school, School to Work initiatives, NJROTC, athletics, and a variety of clubs and after school activities. The district is well known throughout the State of Oklahoma for its outstanding vocal and instrumental music programs. Athletes compete annually on the state level.


Severe Weather


We are monitoring the weather closely today.  If weather conditions become “dangerous”, it will be determined by local administration whether to hold students rather than transport or whether to move students and staff into safe rooms and/or secure areas of the building.  School sites with students will NOT be open to the public during school day hours.  

The Resource Center (corner of Council and SW 44th) will be the only building open to the public when school is in session.

If severe weather threatens, parents may choose to check their students out early from school.   Students WILL be listed with an absence for the time missed as required by State law; there will be no penalty, however, from the school.   If the sirens go off in our area, we will lock down the buildings and place all students and staff into a safe room.  At the point of “tornado lockdown”, no one will be allowed to enter or leave the building and school phones will not be answered because staff will have moved into safe rooms/areas as well.  

During the evening, if sirens go off in the area and imminent, dangerous weather prevails, the following sites will be open to the public.  John Glenn Elementary, Greenvale Elementary, and the Resource Center.  Remember we do NOT allow pets (except designated service animals) even if they are crated, they will not be allowed inside.
