The Owasso Seventh Grade Center is committed to the basic premise that all students can learn. To support this premise we, at the Seventh Grade Center, will focus on the development of the basic skills of learning. We will encourage students to engage in the skills needed to learn by continuing this development in learner-centered, teacher-directed activities. Students will be encouraged to demonstrate the necessary skills so that they may become responsible citizens who can succeed in the task of problem solving.
Our school has been the site of Owasso High School, Owasso Middle School, and currently houses Owasso Seventh Grade Center students with an enrollment of about 650 students annually. Though it is one of the oldest buildings in the district, it has taken precedence in top-priority renovation projects in the past five bond issues. Renovations are finally complete to ensure the safety and security of our student population, while still preserving the historic character of the seventh grade building in which students gain a lifelong love for learning.
We have a new, state-of-the-art library, an extensive, well-equipped computer lab, an enormous newly-built band building, and expansive offices, including a warm, inviting conference room, and a nurse's station to serve students who are in need.
Our students are very active in a host of student focused, curriculum-driven activities, such as National Honors Society, Student Council, Advanced Computer, Band, Vocal, Athletics, Odyssey of the Mind, Creative Studies, Art, and Multi-Cultural Studies, as well as Honors Level classes, Basic Level classes, and Special classes to meet the needs of each student on an individual basis. Our teachers are committed to developing and nuturing knowledge and skills in all students, so that they can be productive members of the twenty-first century.

Frequently Asked Questions 2021-22
Hello Seventh Grade students, parents, and guardians! The Seventh Grade Center faculty and staff are looking forward to beginning our school year on August 12, 2021.
How do I add money to my student’s lunch account?
Please visit the OPS Child Nutrition - District Services / Child Nutrition page.
*Information on free and reduced lunch applications can also be found at this site.
How do I know what bus I ride and where/when it will pick me up?
Follow the link for InfoFinder Address Lookup for current bus route information (this information is subject to change so double check this as the first day approaches). Bus riders must be aware of what round they are to be dismissed in the afternoon.
Who is my counselor?
Where do students go when they arrive at school?
Those students that arrive at school before 7:50 a.m. should do the following:
- Students not eating breakfast will report to the gym until dismissal by the duty teacher. Those eating breakfast (it is free!) will report to the cafeteria for breakfast until dismissal.
- Students that arrive at 7:50-8:00 a.m. should go directly to their first hour class.
What is my locker number?
To help with traffic flow, we will not be assigning lockers at this time. Students may carry backpacks to all classes. Email firstname.lastname@example.org should you have a special circumstance.
Can I have a schedule change?
We do not make schedule changes due to teacher preferences.
Schedule changes requests will be accepted, however, the class capacity will make those requests difficult to accommodate. Schedule change request form is on the counselor webpage. Notification will be Emailed only if that schedule has been modified.
How do I know what lunch I will have?
Lunches will be determined by the student’s fourth period teacher. Students will find out their lunch period on the first day of school during their first hour so that we can balance the seating.
Where do I find the school supply list?
The supply list can be found at https://7gc.owassops.org/ under the Parent section.
What do I bring on the first day of school?
Students will only need paper and pencil on the first two days. You are encouraged to bring all of your supplies as soon as you are able.
Are there any fees I can pay online?
All OPS campuses are now accepting online payments using InTouch Receipting. This link can be accessed on the OPS website (InTouch Receipting – Parents). If your child is enrolled in Art, Band, Choir, Physical Education, Spanish, or STEM/Technology, there may be a small fee for consumables associated with these classes. You can pay these fees via InTouch or during the first few weeks of school by cash or check.
May I use my own electronic device?
OPS requires students to use the school Chromebook device given to each student on Friday, Aug 13th. These devices have safeguards in place to help students avoid things that are not appropriate for the school setting. Students should make sure their Chromebooks are charged at night so that they are ready for use in the morning.
Do you have a map of the school?
We have shared a map through our Google classroom. This Google Classroom will be for daily announcements for our students. Parents are welcome to join as well! We encourage you to have a copy or a screenshot on your phone with the classroom numbers and teacher name. Bus rounds are located in the upper right corner.
See you soon!!!
