THE OSSM EXPERIENCE

The Oklahoma School of Science and Mathematics is located on a 32-acre campus in Oklahoma City, just south of the Oklahoma State Capitol and across from the medical and research facilities of the Oklahoma Health Center.

Classes for 144 junior and senior students are held in the Manning Academic Center, formerly Lincoln Elementary, and students  live in the Dan Little Residence Hall. A fully-equipped gymnasium, the Samson Science and Discovery Center with physics and chemistry research laboratories, as well as the Sen. Bernice Shedrick Library are also located on the school’s campus.

THE SEN. BERNICE
SHEDRICK LIBRARY 

The focal point of the OSSM campus and the first building that visitors see when they enter the main gate. Students use the library as a quiet and visually inviting atmosphere in which to study. The library features a boardroom and adjoining kitchenette, conference room, 14 administrative voices, media production room, classroom, campus computer center, security voice and space for 50,000 volumes of books and texts. Occasionally, the library accommodates students and parents during special events, as well as allows community groups and businesses to gather for meetings and presentations.
