Pryor School Board
Letter from Pryor Public Schools
Superintendent Don Raleigh,
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Pryor Public Schools. Pryor is a vibrant community with something to offer for just about everyone.
Our school district enjoys strong support from the Pryor community, as well as a high level of parental involvement in every area of our school.
The Pryor district includes four elementary schools, a traditional junior high school, and a high school with facilities that include: the 2,500-seat Burdick Center, a vocational agriculture building with greenhouse, state-of-the-art auditorium and performing arts center, football stadium,
track, baseball field, and softball field. We currently serve more than
2,750 students in grades PreK-12.
Our staff of well-experienced educators continually exhibit a high level of commitment and care about our students’ learning. Our district continues to build a professional learning community, where teachers hold high expectations and refuse to allow students to fail.
Our students and teachers are equipped with integrated technology to meet their needs. Every school site houses modern computer labs; and, each teacher has at least one computer in the classroom. Interactive white boards are located throughout our classrooms. Soon we will complete 1-to-1 Chromebook implementation in grades 6 through 12. Teachers continue technology professional development through a partnership with the Eighth Floor Technology Training Center.
"Our students consistently score above the state average on the
state-mandated tests. Each school site has implemented a character education program entitled "The Leader in Me", which is based on the
7 Habits of Highly Effective People. This leadership and personal responsibility approach is providing our students with the opportunity to grow and showcase their leadership skills." All of Pryor Public School sites provide career exploration opportunities for all students as we work with local and regional colleges, CareerTech, business and industry to prepare our students to be college and career ready.
We are proud of the many opportunities we have for our students.
Pryor High School enjoys one of the strongest fine art departments in the State of Oklahoma. Pryor's award-winning instrumental and vocal music programs are well-respected throughout the state.
Multiple opportunities exist for all students to participate in programs, including: FFA, FCCLA, student government, academic teams and honor classes in most academic subjects. A variety of sports including baseball, basketball, cross-country, football, wrestling, golf, soccer, softball, tennis and track are also part of our school programs
Welcome to Pryor! Home of the Tigers!
