|The mission of Putnam City Schools is to prepare all students to be self-navigating critical thinkers for life. We want students to be resourceful and accomplished when they are in our classrooms and long after they leave those classrooms. It's a mission in which we are succeeding. Consider:
In the 30 years Academic All-Staters have been named by the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence, 119 Putnam City students have been so honored, the third-highest number of any school system in the state. Selection of scholars for this honor has been described by University of Oklahoma President and Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence Chairman and Founder David L. Boren as "Oklahoma’s most rigorous academic competition."
In 2016 40 district students were named Oklahoma Academic Scholars by the Oklahoma State Department of Education. Putnam City, the state’s fifth-largest school district, has the third-highest number of Oklahoma Academic Scholars all-time.
In 2015 our graduating seniors received more than $8 million in scholarships from universities across the nation.
Whether you're talking about district students or the district as a whole, Putnam City is at the head of the class.
