Teacher Appreciation 2024

TSAS is an independent public charter school in which every student is welcomed as they are, known and valued for who they are, challenged to become a better version of themselves, encouraged in their efforts to become that person, and celebrated for their successes.

Our Students


TSAS students come from every zip code in Tulsa and are alumni of 40 different schools, creating an authentically diverse, multipartial, and intersectional school that mirrors society at large.

Open Enrollment

New students selected by a random lottery. Class sizes are 18:1 on average to ensure every student feels KNOWN, CHALLENGED, and LOVED in their learning environment. TSAS works hard to engineer a school culture that is open, relational, and humanizing to the highest degree.

Student Body

2023 Demographics

TSAS is committed to being a school that is diverse by design. Many of the major institutional decisions over the school's history have been executed to elevate this goal. As such. 50% of TSAS students are on free or reduced lunch and 58% are students of color.


TSAS has a history of performing well, at or above local, state, and national levels, on standardized and non-standardized metrics of academic success, and is the only charter school in Tulsa that operates a waitlist every year. Also, TSAS has never, in school history, had a teaching role go unfilled.
