EDMOND — Oklahoma Christian School recently dedicated its newly completed high school facility on the campus at I-35 and Second Street.

“Today is a wonderful day and historic day for OCS,” interim Headmaster Dr. W. Roger Webb said. “The future of this great school is exceedingly bright where students are receiving a first-class education in a Christian environment. “

The 31,000-square-foot building is the home of 16 classrooms for 279 students and 20 faculty members, and includes state-of-the-art science labs, a media center and student flex-space.

“Our high school faculty and students are so excited about this new building,” OCS high school principal Keith Campbell said. “We have noticed an immediate difference in the functioning of our classrooms due to the added space and equipment. Our school community will certainly benefit. We feel incredibly blessed.

“This fall marks the first time in school history that our high school students stepped into a high school building designed and built to educate high school students. The building is incredible. It is spacious, bright and well-designed. It is a vast improvement in space and function and it will serve the mission of our school perfectly.”

OCS was founded in 1970, graduated its first senior class in 1975 and moved to its present location in 1987.
