Discover what Yukon has to offer

Ranked among the top 20 places to live in the U.S.,Yukon is a burgeoning suburb of Oklahoma City that still manages to hold onto the charm of a small town. Yukon sprawls across both historic Route 66 and its modern twin, I-40 and across the newly completed John Kilpatrick Turnpike, making it a veritable treasure trove for young families, professionals, and retirees alike. From cultural celebrations and outdoor activities to a robust dining, shopping, and retail scene, it’s all here in Yukon.

Yukon School Districts

The Yukon area is served by three different school districts.

Yukon Public Schools, a leading PK-12 system, is consistently voted one of the Top Workplaces in Oklahoma, enjoying strong community support and involvement. The district, which serves approximately 9,000 students across 12 campuses and includes all of Yukon proper and above I-40, ranks among the highest in the state for academic and athletic performance.

The Mustang School District, which encompasses Yukon residents south of I-40, provides world-class opportunities for students in myriad disciplines, including academic, athletic, and artistic. Mustang Public Schools serves around 12,000 students and garners top achievements across the state year after year. The district was recognized as a top place to work in Oklahoma for the third year in a row, and was also recently voted as one of Forbes’ Best-in-State Employers.

Piedmont Public Schools is a top-rated PK-12 district that serves Yukon residents to the northeast above OK-3/NW Expressway. Piedmont serves approximately 4500 students, boasting a wide variety of extracurricular activities and state-of-the-art facilities as well as a low teacher-to-student ratio. Piedmont schools continue to rank near the top in the state for test scores, graduation rates, and attendance rates.
