Bixby Public Schools conducted a ribbon cutting ceremony for the district’s new West Elementary and Intermediate School, located at 14901 S. Harvard Ave., on August 7.
Made possible by the passage of the District’s 2016 Bond, this $33 million school provides a spacious and modern facility to serve the Bixby community for decades to come. The 155,000-square-foot campus, which opened Aug. 17, houses over 900 students.
The site includes 42 regular classrooms, two art rooms, multiple band and music rooms, two gymnasiums (hardened storm shelters), secure entry vestibules, a large cafeteria, a state-of- the-art media center, and three well-equipped playground areas for different grade levels. The site also includes separate student drop off and pick up lanes for more controlled access to the school, enhancing the safety of pedestrians and vehicles.
After the ceremony, site personnel conducted short tours of the facility for families.
