Why Oak Knoll

Oak Knoll's Private Coed K-6 Elementary School is Different

Educating the Whole Child
Kindergarten through sixth grade are formative years at Oak Knoll. Filled with exciting academic and personal challenges, they’re carefully designed to educate the whole child: aesthetically, intellectually, physically, socially and spiritually.
 
Oak Knoll Lower School offers strong academics that engage curious intellects, a rich curriculum that invites self-expression and a values-based community that nurtures morally solid children. We’re committed to coeducational learning in grades K through six, because we believe that young girls and boys learn best when they learn together.

A Foundation for Life
Our mission is to educate children who are as wise as they are smart. From day one through graduation, we equip students to thrive in any classroom setting. We inspire them to lead and serve with compassion. We develop their individual gifts and show them what it means to be people of action, not words. Above all, we empower students to live lives centered on Christ. 

The Next Step

Most girls attend Oak Knoll’s all-girls middle/high school (Upper School), where they receive an unparalleled college preparatory education. Oak Knoll boys go on to some of the best secondary schools in the area, including:
  • Delbarton School
  • Oratory Prep School
  • Newark Academy 
  • Pingry School
  • Morristown-Beard School
  • Seton Hall Prep
  • Summit Public Schools

Regardless of secondary school enrollment, Oak Knoll Lower School graduates have a long history of matriculating into the nation’s most prestigious colleges and universities. Their success is a natural extension of the foundation they built right here, at Oak Knoll.
