My son attends University School, and loves it. My wife and I are very disillusioned about government schools. If University School wasn't available, we would home school. We are thankful everyday for the school and the teachers who run the place (and the 5 students to 1 teacher ratio, with specialty teachers for Spanish, Chinese, computers, etc.). My son even gets piano lessons at the school once a week. It's awesome. Best school in Tulsa, perhaps anywhere.

Best private school in Tulsa !!! I am an expat with children that does not speak English when we came to Tulsa. The teachers and principle are one of the kind and helpfull ! They give full support to our childern, they even got an honour roll for Kumon Math, just few months after they join the school !The kids are awesome (if I can borrow my kids terms), the environment are SUPERB!. It has a very challanging academic program that need collaboration between the children and parents. If you a type of parents that want your kids to learn about responsibility beside having good education. This is your school. The only thing that my kids less like is the amount of homework. Ha ! but who's not ? I am blessed to find a school like this in Tulsa !

Great school for gifted children. Teacher/student ratio is the best in town and the focus is on getting full potential out of every child. Students are more than prepared to advance to any high school.

This is an incredible school. The teacher to student ratio is very high, as well as the parent/teacher communication. The curriculum is advanced. This school produces leaders.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
