The Alumni Journey

“If you want to know about the outcomes of an Oak Meadow education, there is no better place to start than with our alumni, now attending some of the most prestigious high schools in Massachusetts. “

So begins the post from Jay Scheurle, our Head of School, after he met with some of our alumni. (Read the full post.) In addition to acquiring a solid preparation in academic content knowledge, our graduates have told us how the teachers at Oak Meadow made the subjects come alive in practical, hands-on ways, providing additional opportunities to develop practical-life skills in problem-solving and team building, a benefit they feel has helped them in high school, college and professional life.

What our graduates say about Oak Meadow:

“Some people understand that Montessori education includes working at your own pace. It’s more than that. The teachers helped us learn to be self-motivated and self-directed by challenging us to work hard and reach outside of our comfort zone and realize more of our potential.”
“The transition to Algebra was easy because I already knew that material from Oak Meadow. Mr. Wilkins helped us to think deeply about math concepts. All of that preparation in the early Montessori years, building from the concrete to the abstract, also helped to embed those logical patterns in my head.”
“One of the best aspects of an Oak Meadow education is the multi-age classrooms, where you get to interact with and learn from older students, as well as mentor younger students. That experience served me well when I got to Groton, because that’s exactly the way things work in high school.”

“What I loved most about Oak Meadow was the independence. We had engaging lessons and had lots of opportunities to think deeply and ask questions.”
