About Us


At Burroughs, we will create a fun and safe learning environment where students can discover their passions and apply skills that will navigate them through a world; Anything is Possible


Guided by adult coaches and FIRST LEGO League Jr. Core Values, our students build models and participate in Challenge Expos using LEGO Education. The program focuses on building interest in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM). Participating students must solve real-world challenge using research, critical thinking, and imagination. In addition, our robotics teacher supervises a Discovery Lab Club for students who may be interested in this field.

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 led to consistency in systems that drive success as well as a staff of teachers who 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.

A spirit of giving back

In addition to the standard academic curriculum, our school offers leadership training and community service opportunities to sixth grade students. Students 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. Thanks to organizations such as ONEOK, John 3:16, and Boston Avenue United Methodist, our teachers receive funding and supplies needed throughout the year to teach our students.
