No DoDDS schools. Most preschool and elementary-age children living on base attend Eisenhower Elementary School which is located inside the base gate but belongs to Enid Public Schools. There are multiple education options, including three area public school districts, four private elementary schools, and one private middle/high school.
Enid Public School District has 11 elementary schools, 3 middle schools, 1 high school, and 1 alternative high school. Eligible Enid high school students can participate in concurrent enrollment programs at Autry Technology Center or Northern Oklahoma College. It is recommended you enroll your child as soon as possible, as classes fill up quickly, if the school in your boundary is full, you will be asked to enroll your child in another school within the district and asked to provide transportation to and from school. If you are unable to provide the transportation, please contact your school liaison. You may start the enrollment process online at EPS Enrollment Information. Busses are available for children who live at least 1.5 miles from their assigned area school. The 3 schools children living on Vance AFB attend are Eisenhower Elementary, Emerson Middle School, and Enid High School. Children living in base housing who attend Eisenhower Elementary can walk to school. Emerson Middle School and Enid High School students are bussed to and from school.

Military dependent children in Oklahoma by law are allowed to transfer to any school district (not a specific school within the district) and must be accepted. Parents who elect this option will be responsible for their own transportation.
There are six private schools that serve Enid area students ranging from PreK through high school. Oklahoma has a unique scholarship for private and parochial schools for students who were/are on an IEP/ISP or were former juvenile affairs or foster program children. The scholarships vary depending on the circumstances of the child but may be enough to cover the full cost of private/parochial school tuition. Info can be found at Lindsey Nicole Henry Scholarship.
