Edmond Public Schools is Niche’s #1 school district out of 425 in Oklahoma. The Edmond school district is home to over 25,000 students within 17 elementary schools, six middle schools, three high schools, two alternative high school programs, and an early childhood center. It is the third-largest and fastest-growing school district in the state.
EPS faculty and staff are committed to making their schools a safe and inspiring place for all students, where they grow, learn, and develop knowledge, life skills, and values.

In addition to the academics, Edmond excels at what it does after school hours. Edmond Public Schools are also known for their athletics and have brought home nearly 100 OSSAA state athletic championships. Whether your Edmond student is playing football, basketball or on the swim team, their coaches are teaching valuable leadership skills, sportsmanship and responsibility.
Academics and athletics aside, the Edmond School District is also a highly-rated employer. Edmond Public Schools was named among the top 20 large employers in the region and is currently the largest employer in Edmond.
