“The 8th Grade Academy will offer a lot of instructional advantages for students.”

- Dr. Karla Dyess, BAPS Deputy Superintendent

BA 8th Grade Academy


A 2015 Broken Arrow Public Schools (BAPS) bond issue earmarked $370 million to be appropriated over the course of 12 years. As part of phase III of the bond issue, BAPS decided to update its middle school configuration to include an 8th Grade Academy that will help reduce class sizes and prepare students for the Freshman Academy. Sited adjacent to Sequoyah Middle School on Elm Place between 91st and 101st, the new 8th Grade Academy will be a 50,000 SF two-story facility. Sequoyah will be open during construction and remain a part of this middle school campus.
