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.

Sin embargo, durante muchos años, el Término A de carpintera ha estado en las sombras. Cuando aparece junto a "viaje a Jamaica" o "diversión de golf" en el formulario de preferencia Término A, los estudiantes subestiman rápidamente la verdadera diversión del curso.

Many of you, like me, I presume, were looking forward to 2021 with unbridled enthusiasm and promise. Ready to relinquish the exhaustion of the COVID pandemic, social injustice, and political turmoil, I found myself waiting in anticipation of what may come. A month into the new year, I find myself less future-focused, and more nostalgic about the year behind us.
