We are a tuition-free public ‘partnership’ school that educates PK-1 students by
engaging them in an academic program focused on Scholarship, Entrepreneurship, Technology and Citizenship, where authentic, hands-on learning connects high academic expectations with real life. We strive to be the highest performing school in the state of Oklahoma.

reevaluating and refining what we do.

Our focus on Black Excellence.

Greenwood Leadership Academy is passionate about advancing African-American
achievement in our community. We are determined that North Tulsa’s students and community members will experience Black excellence in every aspect of their lives – through high levels of student success and visible examples of Black leadership throughout the school and community. Being a school that is unapologetically focused on Black Excellence does not mean excluding any other group. We warmly welcome everyone into the GLA family, and trust that all will appreciate the importance in our community of a school that is unrelenting about achieving Black excellence in every arena.
