The Advanced Science and Technology Education Charter (ASTEC) Schools became Oklahoma’s first start-up charter school in 2000, founded by Dr. Freda Deskin. The school began with just 100 middle school students and quickly grew to include a high school with a combined enrollment of more than 1,000 scholars, plus a waiting list of several hundred.
ASTEC is a Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (S.T.E.A.M.) school in which student scholars have technology as a core subject everyday in engaging classrooms where the liberal arts are fully integrated. In addition to these core subjects, ASTEC values character, manners, proper etiquette, social and cultural awareness, a strong work ethic and entrepreneurship. Learn more about ASTEC here.

To be the leader in empowering and inspiring learners to their highest potential
ASTEC Elementary School offers a safe, creative and nurturing environment for children in Pre-K through 5th grade.
Our administrators and faculty hold Bachelor’s, Master's and Ph.D. degrees
and are trained in the best instructional practices. This means that our teachers
use developmentally appropriate lessons in a positive and engaging manner to encourage collaboration.
Children gain a substantive knowledge of math, language, social studies, science,
technology and the arts. Lessons focus on growing and acknowledging the whole child and adapting the learning to each individual child. Our goal is to bring more joy to education and ignite children’s imaginations so they are stimulated to discover meaningful passions of their own and develop a love of life-long learning.
