Oak Meadow School is an independent school inspiring children from 15 months through 8th grade. Oak Meadow School is rooted in the child-centered Montessori philosophy, which fosters academic excellence, personal growth, and cultural awareness while nurturing children’s spirits. A diverse community of life-long learners, we cultivate confident, independent, and compassionate human beings by providing the tools and experiences needed to embark on rich, meaningful journeys as responsible citizens of the world.
The Beginners Program is for toddlers age 15 months to 3 years. Beginners learn by "doing", using carefully crafted materials to create an immersive educational environment that's fun. Beginners work on practical life skills, speech and language, exploring the natural world, art and music, and sensory activities. Student to teacher ratio is 4:1.
Children's House is for children age 3-6 years old. Students build critical foundations using task-oriented Montessori materials to explore language, order, movement and the senses. The program includes math, language, cultural studies (geography, history and science), Spanish, art, music, practical life, STEM and especially social and emotional learning.
Lower Elementary students are in Grades 1-3. Studies are child-driven and include math, Spanish, social and emotional learning, STEM, and other key topics.
The Upper Elementary program is for Grades 4-6, a unique developmental stage. Students are challenged intellectually in a supportive environment that fosters confidence, independence, problem-solving and community.
The Middle School program is for Grades 7-8. In addition to in-depth study and exploration, students develop self-reflection, teamwork, effective communication and critical thinking skills.

"We have been extremely satisfied with the education our daughters have received since we joined Oak Meadow School nine years ago. The curriculum provides a strong grounding in the core subjects and also provides an amazing experience in music, arts, nature, STEM. Children start learning Spanish at age 3. The Montessori centered approaches follow our children and provide the support for their different learning styles and personalities. Multi-age classrooms provide the children opportunities to mentor and the strong focus on social emotional learning is providing them with the skills for success beyond Oak Meadow. The way Oak Meadow has stepped up to provide a full online learning platform for our children right from the start of the coronavirus facility closure has been very impressive. Kudos to the teachers and leadership! While we are all restricted to working from home, our children are happy to go 'to school' every day to work with their teachers and peers through a range of on-line and independent study supported by the Montessori curriculum throughout the school." ~ Facebook review, April 9 2020
