Oak Meadow School was founded in 1977 as a Montessori school for early childhood students. The school has evolved to include elementary and middle school students, and most recently, toddlers. Oak Meadow has a solid reputation as one of the finest independent schools in the country, matriculating its graduates to the most selective independent high schools in New England.
In its ongoing commitment to professionalism, transparency, excellence, and inclusivity, the school recently assembled a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Task Force (composed of teachers, staff, parents, and trustees) to significantly advance the school’s commitment to equity, inclusion, anti-racism, and justice.
