New Home for San Miguel Tulsa

SM building

Changing classes for students at the San Miguel School of Tulsa used to mean walking from building to building—between five buildings in all. Not anymore. The school started a new academic year August 27 with classes housed in one new 8,000 square foot building with eight classrooms, three tutor rooms, and office space. The school is continuing to use a nearby parish activity center for physical education classes, and more offices are in a rehabilitated building linked to the new facility.

“It’s a really simple building. It’s got a polished concrete floor. It’s a metal building,” said San Miguel President Joe O’Connor. “But it is safe and it is secure and it will be light years ahead of what we’ve ever had.”

smartboardSafety was a major concern as cars sped by students as they walked outside to change classes in an area known to have gang members. Weather was also a factor. Now students do not have to step outside to change classes thanks to donations that covered the $1.25 million cost for the new building. The new classrooms feature SMART Boards, and the building has a mosaic at the entrance with the school logo surrounded by donor tiles which a former teacher designed and created.


San Miguel Tulsa will celebrate its new home with an open house September 28 from 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
