History and Interesting Facts

In 1891, the Yukon Public School's District opened its doors in a small, one-room frame building. Since then, the school system has grown to a school population of over 7,800 students. The district is now organized on four levels; seven pre-kindergarten through third grade elementary schools, two 4th/5th elementary schools, one middle school containing sixth through eighth grade, and a high school campus containing ninth through twelfth grade.  To learn more about our early years, take a look at our history

A Five Star System

The Yukon Public School District is fully accredited by the Oklahoma State Department of Education. Further, the high school is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. Yukon has received the highest rating, a Five Star ranking, from the North Central Association in each of five categories; staff, community, students, curriculum, and facilities.

Our Mascot

Our mascot is a great source of pride in our district.  The Millerman was derived from the strong, hard-working folks who operated our once thriving flour mill that still towers over downtown Yukon.  Today, the Millerman remains a symbol of strength and hard work.
