Charles Page High School is a high school in Sand Springs, Oklahoma, named after the philanthropist Charles Page. It is the only public high school in Sand Springs.

History

Charles Page High School was built in 1959, constructed to replace Sand Springs High School, which is now the Central Ninth Grade Center. During construction, there was an accident and the roof collapsed. One of the workers fell 60 feet through the ceiling and died that tragic day, some say his ghost haunts the auditorium.

They compete in basketball, football, cross country, soccer, academic bowl, forensics, and competitive cheerleading and dance.

Gay-Straight Alliance Controversy

In 2004 Charles Page High School garnered national attention with a controversy surrounding the creation of a Gay-Straight Alliance at the school. An openly gay student, Michael Shackelford, was the focus of a series of articles in the Washington Post which brought national attention to the school. This national attention caught the eye of radical preacher Fred Phelps of Topeka, Kansas Westboro Baptist Church who came and protested at Charles Page in November 2004. However the alliance was dismantled after those students graduated.
