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 the more than 100 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 Senator Bernice Shedrick Library are also located on the school’s campus.
Also known as the MAC, the Center contains 19 classrooms, six labs, a computer room, student lounge, auditorium and student reading room. The glass-enclosed atrium is used for office space and student study.
The residence hall has more than 62,000 feet of living space for students and faculty families. The Great Hall located on the ground floor seats up to 500 people and serves as the dining room and study area. The basement provides a space for relaxation with billiard and game tables, as well as serves as a storm shelter. An addition to the residence hall was completed in 2011, providing 48 new dorm rooms and four additional faculty apartments.
The gym provides equipment for weight training and exercise and houses volleyball and basketball courts, a weight room, a dance/aerobic area, locker rooms and shower facilities.
Named in honor of the Tulsa-based Samson Investment Co, the center houses four physics labs, three chemistry labs, a dark room, four preparation rooms, 16 faculty offices, a demonstration lab, eight individual labs and a computer lab, which provide accommodation for students to participate in ongoing research and hands-on learning.
The library is the focal point of the OSSM campus and the first building 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 offices, media production room, classroom, campus computer center, security office and space for 50,000 volumes of books and texts. Occasionally, the library hosts special events for students and parents, as well as community groups and businesses on occasion
