Museum District Campus
Post Oak's High School and Middle School are located at the corner of Montrose and Autrey Street in Houston’s Museum District—fertile soil for the interdisciplinary partnerships central to this school’s mission: to prepare an outstanding Montessori environment that fosters collaboration, cooperation and peace, and to provide experiences that promote curiosity, inquiry and engagement.
The High School building was newly constructed in 2016. Our Middle School building was constructed in the 1970s and completely remodeled in 2012. Both buildings are single story brick and glass-walled structures. Several walls are composed entirely of windows, allowing for daylight to flood the learning spaces throughout the day, creating an airy interior. The open floor plans give students and faculty vast flexibility to design and redesign the spaces. A number of closed rooms provide options for when a separated space is needed. In the Middle School, open areas are divided with furnishings and partitions resulting in dynamic and tailored spaces, perfect for small or large group meetings as needed.
At the High School, the science lab provides a space for on-site work that extends to work in labs at our partners, such as the Houston Museum of Natural Science just a 15-minute walk away. Our Museum District partnerships give us access not only to world-class physical resources, but also to world-class scientists, artists, and business people.
The High School's tinker lab is the place for hands-on physical investigations, explorations, and innovations. It is a “garage” of sorts where ideas and art can come to life. It is where science becomes engineering and concept becomes design.
