Undercroft Montessori School
Founded in 1964, Undercroft Montessori is Tulsa’s first and only accredited Montessori program. The school is a private, non-religious school located in midtown Tulsa and serves children three years old through 8th grade. The focus is on the individual child, providing an environment that truly inspires a life-long love of learning.
The Montessori method of education, developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, is a child-centered educational approach based on scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood. Dr. Montessori’s Method has been time-tested, with over 100 years of success in diverse cultures throughout the world. It is a view of the child as one who is naturally eager for knowledge and capable of initiating learning in a supportive, thoughtfully prepared learning environment. It is an approach that values the human spirit and the development of the whole child – physical, social, emotional and cognitive.
Undercroft provides an authentic Montessori education and is committed to independence in thought and action, critical and collaborative thinking, academic excellence, compassion, and respect for self, community and the world.
