Global Learning

Extending the Classroom

Post Oak students are not limited by the walls of a classroom. They are encouraged to grow their minds and get to know the world around them, from observing nature, discovering their passions outside of books and lectures, and taking on work for a more peaceful society.

Opportunities abound for Post Oak students to explore and learn about the region in which they live. Students in Elementary begin taking short trips, while Middle School and High School students take on service learning and internships in the Museum District and beyond.

Just a plane ride away from the hub of Houston, Post Oak students join programs that take them on historical, cultural, and environmental learning adventures. And our own state of Texas offers paleontological treasures and coastal excursions within a day's drive.

Passports? Check. Our students have the opportunity to travel internationally for field schools, cultural exchanges, Montessori Model United Nations conferences, and enriching experiences that they will remember for a lifetime.

Europe Upper Elementary classes join together for this exciting four-day adventure to Nature’s Classroom Institute (NCI) in New Ulm, TX. Each year students experience new curriculum and activities while also anticipating the fun traditions, games and challenges that make this outdoor school special. 

Asia The highlight of overnight travel in Elementary is the 6th grade trip to Williamsburg. This uniquely developed and operated township serves as an ideal setting to experience and study American history. This week-long excursion is packed with too many events, programs, and meals to mention here.
