High School science class

At The Post Oak School, high school students have direct experience in Houston's cultural center—the Museum District—and the nearby Texas Medical Center.

The unique opportunities, including multi-year internships, give students authentic, real-world work that drives their development and prepares them for an engaged adulthood. Experiences at Post Oak nourish students' diverse interests, helping each student identify personal passions, and actively prepare for university and for life beyond school. At Post Oak, student curiosity deepens into real interest, and work becomes expertise.

9th & 10th Grades. The first two years of high school help students to ground themselves in a diverse array of experiences and challenges across their classes. Each subject area is a deep dive toward robust understanding and skill building. Students combine classroom and off-campus opportunities to build themselves up toward applied practicum work and real-world accomplishments.

11th & 12th Grades. Students in their final two years of high school engage in a rich array of class experience that includes working toward a International Baccalaureate diploma. Students focus on the intersections of place, culture, history, and the natural environment through the disciplines, in pursuit of the unifying values of peace and sustainability.

International Baccalaureate

The Post Oak School is one of a handful of Houston schools offering the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program for 11th and 12th grades. An IB diploma is highly regarded around the world, and the state of Texas requires its universities to implement policies awarding college credit to students who’ve successfully completed the IB diploma.

IB Schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that we believe is important for our students. As an IB World School, Post Oak is committed to a balanced world-class education that supports students on their path to adulthood.
