Student-driven Internships

High School internship at MFAH

Our partnerships with local institutions evolve into internship opportunities for our students.

Among Post Oak's teachers are curators and scientists from the world-renowned museums; artists from the Glassell School of Art; doctors from the Texas Medical Center; and researchers from the Houston Museum of Natural Science, all of whom work in our partner institutions throughout the Houston Museum District. Students directly connect with experts in the field, shoulder to shoulder. The result is a school that breaks down walls and maximizes opportunities for students to engage.

Over 75% of Post Oak's High School students choose to participate in the internship program. Students build on their classwork as they follow their interests into internships. Some pursue paleontology, entomology, history, and marine biology by working weekly at Houston Museum of Natural Science. A student with a long-time interest in psychology interned at the Jung Center. A group of students completed an EV car conversion project. You can read about and follow our student interns through their blogs. Read more about high school internships in Houston's Museum District.
