While our Burroughs Bobcats are navigating the world with education: anything is possible!
Welcome to Burroughs!
At Burroughs Elementary, we believe that while navigating the world with education, anything is possible. We create a fun and safe learning environment where students can discover their passions and apply skills that will navigate them through the world! Burroughs offers a diverse and welcoming school community.
Centered in the heart of North Tulsa, Burroughs Elementary School continues to be a gateway to excellent education. Serving over 350 students annually, Burroughs prides itself on being the first building block of preparing every student for college and career! We are known for our strong community presence and dedicated partnering with Boston Avenue Methodist Church and ONEOK, just to name a few.
We have energetic, impactful and innovative teachers who are continuing with our theme of nurturing and appreciating the differences in children while pushing them towards their potential.
Thanks to the support of the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation and Devon Energy, every elementary school has a new STEM center where students can participate in fun and engaging hands-on learning activities - including computer coding!
Stability and Consistency
Located just two miles north of downtown Tulsa, Burroughs Elementary has a long and proud history in the community. We were the first school to embrace integration, and we continue to focus on ensuring we provide a safe, joyful, and welcoming environment for our students and families. This commitment has driven success, and our teachers go above and beyond for the students at Burroughs. Whether they are finding time to learn from each other, volunteering on the weekends, or perfecting their leadership skills, teachers at Burroughs are always looking for ways to bring new ideas and ways of learning to our students.
Strong Community Connections
In addition to the standard academic curriculum, our school offers leadership training and community service opportunities to students. They work with an active member of the local community to select a non-profit organization and implement community service projects that help raise money. This program is a powerful way for students to give back to a community that so generously supports our school.
