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.


Littleton, Massachusetts is located just northwest of Concord, in one of the top growth areas outside of Boston, and attracts families who value the best educational options available, with housing costs lower than communities closer to Boston. Train service to Boston is easily accessible, and the beautiful outdoor resources of New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, Cape Cod, and the Berkshires are a short drive away.

Oak Meadow School’s Mission Statement:


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.
