Shawnee Schools is a district of 4,000 students in grades PK-12 and eight school sites.  Shawnee has a rich community culture reflected in the diversity of the student population composed of Native Americans, African Americans, Hispanics and Caucasians.   The board of education and school district is committed to providing all students outstanding academic and extracurricular programs.  Shawnee Schools, established in 1895. have been educating children well before Oklahoma’s statehood with the first schools

Shawnee Schools embarked upon a new era of community and district progress with the renovation of elementary sites, construction of the Middle School in 2001, the Early Childhood Center in 2007 and most recently the Performing Arts and Athletic Center in 2008. Located on the high school campus, the new performing arts and athletic facility, hosted numerous athletic events, fine art performances and Project Graduation.   Last year was a tremendously successful year with many district and student successes and accomplishments.  Multiple student groups and teams were recognized locally and on the state level for their championship performances.

As educators push themselves to higher levels of expertise, the teaching staff continues to grow in knowledge and skills.  Summer of 2010 had 552 staff participate in over 39 district workshops.  Twenty-four district teachers have attained National Board Certification and all staff constantly strive to improve the learning environment for all students.  From bus drivers to maintenance, all staff play a critical role in making school a successful day to day operation.  2011-2012 will be no different as the school district implements new programs and teaching strategies designed to better meet the needs of all students.

The district’s success and progress, in providing high quality instruction and improved facilities, is largely dependent upon continued patron, parent and community support.   There is much work left to be done, as higher levels of achievement are set, but Shawnee employees are dedicated to finding more efficient and innovative ways to serve students.

Each school has a link to the district website and features upcoming events and activities specific to that site.
