A Putnam City High School students moments before graduation ceremonies begin.

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 31 years in which the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence has named Academic All-Staters,122 Putnam City students have been so honored. That’s the fifth-highest total of any school system in the state. Selection of scholars for this honor has been described by former University of Oklahoma President and Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence Chairman and Founder David L. Boren as “Oklahoma’s most rigorous academic competition.”

In 2018 56 district students were named Oklahoma Academic Scholars by the Oklahoma State Department of Education. Putnam City, the state’s fifth-largest school district, also has the fifth-highest number of Oklahoma Academic Scholars all-time.

In 2018 our graduating seniors received more than $9.3 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.
