Guymon Public Schools, in partnership with Oklahoma GEAR UP, continues to celebrate ongoing success in helping students and families prepare for college. Guymon works directly with GEAR UP to provide early intervention services and strategies for approximately 1,200 students in grades seven through 12. GEAR UP activities with Guymon include administrator and teacher training in school leadership, school data analysis and planning, advanced science, math and English teaching strategies, creating a college going culture, counseling for college readiness and more. Students and their families receive information on college planning and how to apply for financial aid.

More than 100 students toured a college campus to learn about college programs and life on campus. A total of 134 high school seniors participated in College App Week last November, resulting in 178 completed college applications with the assistance of onsite college mentors. Four students participated in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) institute at Redlands Community College in El Reno and Rogers State College in Claremore. Freshman students participated in a rookie camp for new high school students designed to start students off on the right track in their new school setting.
