In the fall of 1970, classes started at Briarglen Elementary, making Briarglen the oldest of the elementary schools in the district. It was named after the housing addition in which it was built. Today, Briarglen serves about 600 students in pre-Kindergarten through fifth grade in traditional and looping classrooms.
Working with and through our community of patrons, area businesses, central office administration and our PTA, Briarglen is proud to offer a well-balanced curriculum and activities for students and their families.
Briarglen will continue to evaluate our school program to improve our instructional methods and assessment procedures. Briarglen welcomes the involvement of our community and is proud of its ownership of our school.
Briarglen participates in the Tulsa Area Community Schools Initiative (TACSI). The community school’s philosophy supports school personnel, parents, neighbors and community partners working together so our children can participate in a strong instructional program by living and learning in safe and supportive environments.

Union Help Line
A safe and secure school environment is essential to the learning process. An important ingredient in achieving safe and secure schools remains alert eyes and ears. Safety is achieved when an atmosphere exists in which students are comfortable talking with adults about their concerns.
One such tool available for students is a Union Help Line that is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. to anyone who wants to report a concern. The caller may leave a message so his or her call can be returned, or they may choose not to be contacted. You can also call COPES if this is a mental health emergency.
