The Post Oak School Photo #1 - Middle School (D.C. trip)
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.
We emphasize independence, self-direction, and choice because they help young people identify which doors they want to walk through.
We emphasize collaboration, cooperation, and peace because, ultimately, we know that neither we nor our children walk alone.

School Reviews

5  
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.
