Modern Oklahoma City was settled as part of the famous 1889 “Land Run.” By the time Oklahoma became a state, Oklahoma City had developed into a commercial center and major stop on Route 66. Like many cities, OKC saw post-war growth followed by an urban decline in the 1970s-80s. Luckily, redevelopment projects in the 1990s and 2000s revived the city and have since attracted an influx of families and young professionals looking for jobs and affordable Oklahoma real estate.
Oklahoma City offers many highly-rated public and private schools. Classen School of Advanced Studies and Harding Charter Preparatory High School rank high among public schools nationally.
