Jarod Mendenhall, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
I would like to welcome you to the Broken Arrow Public Schools website. I hope you will find the district's site both informative and easy to navigate as we continue to expand our technology efforts.
Broken Arrow is a suburb east of Tulsa and is the fourth largest city in Oklahoma. Even though Broken Arrow is a large community, it continues to be grounded in small town values. BAPS is the seventh largest school district in Oklahoma with 16,700 students and boasts the largest high school in the state. Despite the size and continual growth of the school district, we maintain a cohesive, family-oriented culture that places the focus on student learning.
Every day, this community makes it a "Great Day to be a Tiger," and this was never more evident than in December 2009 when patrons passed a $295 million dollar bond issue that provided for capital improvements and state of the art technology throughout the school district. The patrons have traditionally supported Broken Arrow Public Schools through approval of bond issues, and this latest vote was no different.
Our school district also encourages local business partnerships through our Partners in Education program. Parent involvement and student mentorships have also become the norm at all school sites. Broken Arrow Public Schools is truly a premier school district in the state and I can assure you that we will continue the academic excellence for every student in Broken Arrow.
