Tulsa Public Schools has a long tradition of magnet schools. Students are required to complete an application process to be considered for acceptance into a magnet school or program. Admissions to the three types of magnet programs are as follows:

Interest Magnets: Student interest is the determining factor for admission to our four high schools offering a wide variety of specific programs.
Interest magnet schools include Central, Hale, McLain and Webster High Schools.

Lottery Magnets: Students are selected based on a random drawing from each geographic quadrant of the city to fill available spaces.
The lottery schools include:

  • Elementary schools: Dual Language Program, Eisenhower International School, Mayo Demonstration School and Zarrow International School
  • Middle/junior high schools: Monroe Demonstration School, Thoreau Demonstration Academy, Will Rogers College Junior High School

May Demonstration SchoolThe novel concept of age groupings instead of the standard grade system is just one hallmark of Mayo Demonstration School.

Add a core of “life skills”— examples include integrity, perseverance, cooperation, effort— and you have the backbone of a character education program that teaches children the importance of community and mutual respect.

The Mayo Difference:

  • Integrated curriculum based on conceptual learning
  • Emphasis on research
  • Non-graded, multi-age groupings
  • Extended school day for students
  • Full-day 4-and 5-year-old programs
  • Open classrooms

Booker T. Washington

Booker T. Washington High School is a public high school, established in 1913. Since 1973, it has been Tulsa’s comprehensive magnet high school.

BTW entrance

BTW photo credit: Jon B. Petersen

Booker T. Washington is a world class high school in the heart of America. It is the top high school in the state of Oklahoma, according to Newsweek magazine’s challenge index. Founded in 1913 to serve the citizens of the African-American community, Washington was chosen in 1973 to be the vehicle for Tulsa’s school desegregation program. When Washington was established as a magnet school every effort was made to find students who would profit, achieve, and grow within the program. The school serves students from every racial, ethnic, religious, and socio-economic group in Tulsa. Washington continues to thrive based on the twin ideals of promoting excellence and acceptance of diversity. This experience has enhanced our institution to be one of the most successful secondary schools in the United States. Our racially balanced student body boasts championship basketball, football, and soccer teams, a nationally ranked academic bowl team, physics team, and forensics team.

Washington is at the forefront of academic trends. Washington was the first Tulsa Public High School to offer Advanced Placement courses and is one of only two high schools in Oklahoma to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma. With the addition of the International Baccalaureate Diploma, the program today attracts students who thrive in a challenging environment. For many years, major universities and colleges, as well as technical, business, art and music academies have actively recruited Booker T. Washington students. The 2003-2004 school year marked the 90th anniversary of Washington and the dedication of a new school building. The dedication of the new building unites our past and present traditions with our bright prospect for the future as a symbol of what public education can do for our youth.
