Enid Public Schools is a student-centered district that consists of one high school, three middle schools and eleven elementary schools, which are commonly referred to as "neighborhood" schools. The district also has an alternative school, as well as an adult education center.
EPS offers students a rigorous, college-bound curriculum with personalized instruction designed to meet the needs of all students. The district provides enrichment/gifted education opportunities at all levels, including 16 AP classes and concurrent enrollment options at EHS. EPS also provides a comprehensive special education program with a staff that includes two national award winners. For its youngest students, EPS offers developmentally appropriate pre-kindergarten to second-grade classes, with a full-time early childhood consultant on staff.
The heart of the district is its highly qualified teaching staff. The district’s personnel department follows a strategic, research-based process to find the most valuable candidate for each available position. The backbone of the district is its support staff, whose members are essential to the daily mission of the system.
EPS believes in educating the whole child. The health services staff includes two Nationally Board Certified school nurses. The district also works collaboratively with local social service agencies to provide students and their families with any assistance they may need.
EPS offers a plethora of opportunities for students to showcase and grow their talents in all arenas — academics, athletics, music, community involvement, leadership and more.
The district is in the process of a three-year facility improvement plan, which was developed by parents, community members and teachers. In 2010, voters approved more than $99 million for facility, technology and bus improvements, including two new elementary schools to accommodate enrollment growth.
EPS students benefit from tremendous community support. Residents contribute more than 20,000 volunteer hours annually, and the EPS Foundation donates $30,000 to classrooms each year.
