The Post Oak School is an educational leader both among Houston’s top private schools and among the more than 5,000 Montessori schools across the country.
Post Oak serves students from age 14 months through high school, and is one of the U.S.’ oldest Montessori schools (the oldest in the Southwest and one of only four  Houston AMI schools).
We have attracted an accomplished team of faculty and staff and built a campus dedicated to learning.
Our mission, our vision, our method, and our people are the means by which The Post Oak School helps shape consistently high achievers.
At The Post Oak School, we help shape young people that are “equipped in their whole beings for the adventure of life, accustomed to the free exercise of their own will and judgment, illuminated by imagination and enthusiasm”.
At Post Oak, we help children understand the world, but not just because the world is infinitely interesting and learning is fun.
We help them understand it so they’ll know how to make it a better place.
We emphasize reading, math, and science because they open doors into the world.
