Altus Public Schools is a thriving K-12 school district surrounded by fertile agriculture land, connected to Altus Air Force Base, and immersed into the middle of the community of Altus. These work together to create a diverse population and the rich heritage of Altus Public Schools. Seven campuses and an Administration Center make up the Altus Public Schools District which serves approximately 3,300 students. School sites are divided into grade-level centers with two grades per school. L. Mendel Rivers Elementary located on Altus Air Force base is an exception; students in Pre-K through 4th grade call Rivers their school. Altus High School is home to 9th through 12th grades and offers a diverse array of academic classes and extra-curricular activities to build our Bulldogs into Dedicated, Noble and Ambitious citizens.
