$25,000 Grand Prize for America’s Most Spirited High School
Meet 2017 Winner, Broken Arrow High School!
The heartbeat of every town is its high school. Broken Arrow High School is no exception. Even as the largest high school in Oklahoma, Broken Arrow maintains an unparalleled sense of connectedness. Broken Arrow Tiger pride is contagious and many graduates eventually return to Broken Arrow to raise their families.
What’s their secret? At Broken Arrow High School, there’s something for everyone. From bass fishing to Zumba, Broken Arrow offers activities for every student taste and interest. And despite their diverse interests, all students are united by The Jungle. The Jungle is comprised of hundreds of loud and proud Tigers, who cheer on their peers at athletic events, school plays, academic competitions, and more. The Jungle never fails to bring the community together, even at away games over 200 miles away.
Broken Arrow students explains, “Spirit is defined as enthusiastic loyalty. Enthusiasm pushes us forward, and loyalty is what keeps us coming back for more every time one of our own accomplishes something great. We show up to events because we want our school to build people up and show them that what they are doing counts.”
