Western Heights Public Schools is a small independent school district located on the southwest side of Oklahoma City. Our 3,300+ 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.
