HCP is sponsoring a last hurrah for its presence in the

Centennial High.

Come and tour the Harding Building as a school for what

could be the last time. It will be held on Friday, May 3,

2019.

 

Tours from 8 to 11 am and 2-3 pm on the half hour.1:00 pm -

Join us for a "Gathering" in the Harding Charter Prep Media

Center.

Bring any Harding pictures for a "Memory Table" to share

with other Eagle Alumni.

 

Of course, we are all still hoping that the negotiations of

Harding fine Arts and the school board come to fruition,

and Harding Fine Arts is allowed to purchase the building.

 

 

Here is a message from Harding Charter Prep::

 

Moving with a View 

  The Harding Charter Prep stakeholders-faculty, Governance board, parents of both current and new students along with students viewed their new 50-acre campus currently known as Centennial Middle/High School. HCP administrators  recently conducted two different tours of the new location.  The first tour was for teachers to view potential classrooms, sports/athletic facilities, office space, cafeteria and the Media Center.  The faculty walked away excited about the pending move and new opportunities which the space will allow. The second tour, was open to parents, current and prospective, students, alum and community supporters.  At this last tour, close to 400 folks viewed the campus
 The HCP administration and Governance Board attorneys are now in lease negotiations for the school to relocate this summer.  The 50-acre campus is located at 1301 NE 101st St, Oklahoma City, OK.
  HCP administrators hope to get possession of the building July 1, which will give the school community a month to move and ready the new facility for an early August return of teachers with classes beginning August 13.

Harding Building Controversy (March 2019)

For those of us not living in OKC it's been difficult to find out exactly what's going on with regards to the Harding building. I'll try to explain (as far as I understand) what has happened. Apparently the OKC School Board has proposed a big restructuring of the public schools that will close 15 schools and reconfigure or relocate 17 others. The Harding building was classified as needing too many repairs and the two charter schools, Harding Charter Prep (HCP) and Harding Fine Arts Academy (HFAA) were offered "new" locations - Oklahoma Centennial High School on N. Kelley and Putnam Heights Elementary, both slated for closure.

It appears that a lot of the planning has been under the radar. For a spirited defense of Harding, try googling Elizabeth Prosser's "Point of View" that appeared in the OKC newspaper on February 20, 2019 or read it on our Forum page.

Charter Prep decided to move to the N. Kelley site as announced on their Facebook page. They will be there next fall. I believe they intend to keep the Harding name.

The Fine Arts school and their board looked at Putnam Heights and rejected it for numerous reasons, including a lack of an auditorium or gym suitable for high school students, no science labs, no adult plumbing, and no parking. They also looked at other facilities, but eventually decided that they want to remain in the Harding building and possibly purchase it. They realize that the 96 year old building needs repairs and are willing to deal with that. See HFAA on Facebook for additional information.

At a Mar. 11th meeting, the Okla. City School Board voted unanimously to declare 5 properties (including Harding) as surplus. There is a write-up of this on Mar. 12. You can google it under "Building offered for relocation needs repairs" by Tim Willert. I do not know the next steps for HFAA.
