World-class Montessori education. We have been members of the Post Oak community for six years. We enrolled our children in part because of my own positive experiences as a Post Oak student in the 1980s. From my own experience, one skill that I unequivocally attribute to Post Oak is an endless curiosity about the world and my place in it; a love of learning for the sake of learning. Post Oak provides the perfect foundation for the development of a well-rounded, intellectually-curious, self-reliant child. We love the faculty and their dedication to empowering our children as individuals for future success not just as students, but as contributing members of society.
