Jenks Public School's Planetarium was built in 2010 and serves Jenks and the surrounding area with educational shows and field trips.
Jenks Community Education (JCE) shares our District’s mission of preparing all learners for productive, responsible citizenship in an ever-changing world. We open the doors of our facilities beyond the school day to provide affordable opportunities to encourage lifelong learning, fitness, and personal growth. JCE, a self-funded department, provides annual financial assistance to the District to further enhance student programs and services. Participating in JCE programs is another way to support Jenks Public Schools.
Explore the night sky with our engaging, awe-inspiring shows at the Jenks Planetarium!

The Planetarium is located on the 3rd floor of the Dr. Kirby A. Lehman Center for the Study of Math and Science Center on the Jenks High School Campus.
