Construction at Scissortail Elementary, the district’s 19th elementary school, is moving at a brisk pace this summer as crews work to ready the school for the start of the 2022-2023 school year. The school will open with around 350 students and incorporates PK-5th grades. New phases of the school will be built in the future to accommodate student growth.

Scissortail was designed by The Stacy Group of Edmond. Featuring bright colors, bold patterns, and an abundance of natural light, the school is designed to enhance student learning. Located southwest of the intersection of NW 150th St and N. Pennsylvania Ave, Scissortail will help to offset the considerable growth at other elementary schools in the southwest quadrant of the district.

The school houses administration, media center, cafeteria, and gym, with playgrounds for upper and lower grade levels. The school’s cafeteria has a stage for student performances with built-in risers. The school’s gym doubles as a storm shelter for the students. Grade level pods arrange classrooms around a group area to encourage interaction between students and teachers.
