Charles Page High School was built in 1959, constructed to replace Sand Springs High School, which is now the Central Ninth Grade Center. During construction, there was an accident and the roof collapsed. One of the workers fell 60 feet through the ceiling and died that tragic day, some say his ghost haunts the auditorium.
They compete in basketball, football, cross country, soccer, academic bowl, forensics, and competitive cheerleading and dance.
Gay-Straight Alliance Controversy
In 2004 Charles Page High School garnered national attention with a controversy surrounding the creation of a Gay-Straight Alliance at the school. An openly gay student, Michael Shackelford, was the focus of a series of articles in the Washington Post which brought national attention to the school. This national attention caught the eye of radical preacher Fred Phelps of Topeka, Kansas Westboro Baptist Church who came and protested at Charles Page in November 2004. However the alliance was dismantled after those students graduated. 
Clubs include the African American Student Union (AASU), Native American Student Association (NASA), Anchor Club, French Club, Spanish Club, Key Club, YMCA Youth and Government, Student Council, Gold Pride Marching Band, Academic Team, Family Career Community Leaders of America, Future Farmers of America, Choir, Debate, BITI, Business Professionals of America, National Honor Society, Drama, Debate, Competitive Speech, The Sanditonian (newspaper), and The Sandite (yearbook).
The school mascot is the Sandite.

Charles Page High School has an extensive athletic complex that includes tennis courts, an indoor basketball arena, a baseball field, a football stadium, and one and a half football practice fields.
At the end of the 2006 football seasion, Charles Page's football stadium, Memorial Stadium, was demolished. Construction of the new Memorial Stadium started in the early winter of 2007. The field itself and bleachers were completed for the start of the 2007 football seasion, while the stadium facilities such as restrooms, locker rooms, and concession stands were completed mid seasion. The original stadium was built in 1948-1949 to replace the older Dubie Field that was located at 2nd and Washington in Sand Springs.
On 13 October 2009, Sand Springs citizens passed a bond issue that will provide renovations to the current Ed Dubie fieldhouse as well as various other projects such as a new fine arts facility and the demolition of the pool for the eventual converting into a new wrestling facility.
(Note: Marques Haynes actually graduated from Booker T. Washington High School in Sand Springs. However, CPHS is the successor school after the integration of African-American students into the Sand Springs School System. Likewise, William R. Pogue, Jerry Adair and Mae Young graduated from Sand Springs High School, which was replaced by CPHS in 1959.)
