Downtown Campus 

Commonly called the Central Campus for its central location adjacent to downtown Amarillo, this is where the vision of Opportunity School first began. The school was started by a Sunday School class at First Presbyterian Church in 1969 and  shares classroom space with FPC Kids Ministry. The entrance is located at the south parking lot facing 12th Street between Harrison and Van Buren Street. There is an Opportunity School door bell at the church doors under the portico. Please feel free to call to schedule a tour.  

Opportunity School's Central Campus has been nationally accredited since 1986 by the National Association for the education of Young Children (NAEYC) which is the gold standard for quality early childhood education programs. The NAEYC website contains great resources for families. Our National Accreditation was renewed in March 2018. 

The Central Campus features full-day, year round classes for preschool students. Daily meal service is provided for breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack. Limited bus transportation is provided within a certain distance and area around the school if we have enough families sign up. We also have a full-time early intervention specialist on staff to work with children who need extra help with language and vocabulary, behavioral or developmental delays. We can help families connect with other therapies as needed. . 

In 2016, we added an infants and toddlers (0-3 years) with a collaboration called Opportunity School at Gratitude House for the children of Gratitude House residents in partnership with the Downtown Women's Center and Early Head Start. We have two classrooms housed within Gratitude House across the street from the school.
