Broken Arrow Senior High School is the highest level of secondary education in the Broken Arrow Public Schools system, for students in tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grades. The school, combined with the Broken Arrow Freshman Academy, is the largest high school in the state of Oklahoma.[2] The current principal is Liz Burns.[3]

Campus

The campus at the high school consists of fourteen buildings, including a cafeteria, media center, and six large parking lots. Also on the campus are the school's athletic facilities - Tiger Field House (basketball, wrestling, and volleyball), Tiger Field at Broken Arrow Memorial Stadium (football and soccer), Tiger Field (baseball), Lady Tiger Field (softball), a practice football field, a practice softball field, and tennis courts.

Other athletic facilities on campus include the following:

  • Building M (Auxiliary Gym) - In the summer of 2000, the auxiliary gym opened as another practice facility for basketball and volleyball. This building includes two full size basketball courts, as well as the versatility to host volleyball practices.
  • Building N (Baseball, Softball, Cheerleading Indoor) - The baseball, softball, and cheerleading programs got their indoor practice facility in the summer of 2005. The building includes locker rooms for all three teams, coaches offices, and six retractable batting cages, as well as enough room to take ground balls.
  • Multi-Purpose Indoor Practice Facility - Since the opening of Tiger Field at Broken Arrow Memorial Stadium in 2000, the facility lacked the locker rooms desired by the programs using the field. In 2010, the football and soccer teams moved into a $1.7 million facility including locker rooms, coaches offices, weight rooms, and medical training rooms. Also located in this building is the athletic department offices.
  • Student Union- The center of student life at BAHS, which is used to eat, play games, hang out, and buy student athletic and activity passes. This facility also includes a Jamba Juice.
  • Main Building- Connects Buildings A and B and contains the administrative office, the Tiger Threads store (where students can purchase BA clothing and accessories), a state of the art Media Center, computer lab, and café.

The current executive director of athletics is Steve Dunn, who was hired on May 24, 2018. Dunn took over for athletic director Ken Ellett who held the title for 28 years before being promoted to executive director of student programs. Dunn was named the Oklahoma Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association Athletic Director Newcomer of the Year in 2016.[4]

The athletic logo is one of the most identifiable and unique in the state. It consists of the letter "B" along with a broken arrow in the shape of an "A". Variations of this logo have been in use since the mid-1980s.
