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.
In honor of the Big Bearkat Book Bash and National Library Week, the Post Oak Library is sharing ways you can help your child love to read.
One of the amazing things about Post Oak is the learning opportunities we get to experience while off-campus. This could be outside in our garden, learning new sports on our quad, or going to service learning.
What is service learning? Service learning is when the students and faculty travel off-campus to help and serve people in need.
Gala and artwork, it’s a hot topic, and if you’ve never been to this grand biennial event, you might wonder what’s the story here. Each class worked hard during the fall semester to create unique works for our live auction at the gala. The live auction highlights our fundraising event—fast-action bidding, high energy, teachers waiting in nail-biting anticipation to see how their class project will do and who will take home the piece—it’s serious fun!
