    Enid's first school began on March 12, 1894. Central, Jefferson and East Hill (now known as Garfield) were Enid's first educational institutions. Roosevelt Elementary school was built in 1925 and later demolished. Wilson School was built in 1937.

    Segregation

    Oklahoma schools became segregated with statehood in 1907, including Enid Public Schools. Booker T. Washington and George Washington Carver were the city's black schools during the period of segregation. Washington school, founded in 1896, and instructing students of all grades, was originally located near Government Springs Park at the current location of the Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center, but moved to a larger building on 5th street in 1921. Carver elementary school was constructed in 1949 as an all black school. A third school, encompassing grades 1-8, Douglas School operated from 1918 to 1920.

    Enid Public Schools were integrated in 1959. From 1967 to 1969, Jackson and Carver split grades 1-3 and 4-6, respectively, between the two schools. Both of these schools closed in 1969. Jackson School, originally an all-white school built in 1936 and designed by the architect Roy Shaw, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Shaw also designed several other Enid school buildings including Enid High, Adams, Garfield, Roosevelt and Longfellow. Following integration in the 1970s, Carver High School became Carver Educational Center and Washington became the Booker T. Washington Community Center.
