Tulsa Public Schools

About Tulsa Public Schools

Our mission is to inspire and prepare every student to love learning, achieve ambitious goals, and make positive contributions to our world. We are the destination for extraordinary educators who work with our community and families to ignite the joy of learning and prepare every student for the greatest success in college, careers, and life.

Our diversity is a community treasure, and we must foster an inclusive environment by examining biases and resolving unfair practices. Valuing equity means that we must provide resources and supports matched to student need, for every student in every school.

We are honest, trustworthy and have high standards of behavior. We make decisions, take action and approach our work based on what is best for our students and their success. We do the right thing even when it is hard.

Tulsa needs and expects world-class public schools. Achieving excellence means striving for it every moment of every day. It means sweating the small stuff while we focus on the big picture with determination and persistence.

We care for one another, support the personal and professional development of one another, and work together to improve our community. Together we celebrate success, learn from struggles and invest in the development of our teams and team members.

We foster exuberant classrooms, schools and places of work where children and adults pursue their passions and are relentlessly curious. Play is invaluable for students and adults alike. Joy at school and at work makes us more productive, because when we create, innovate and imagine, our motivation grows.
