About the Gala
The Post Oak School’s biennial gala is a source of revenue for basic school needs not covered by tuition.

Gala funds in the past have helped pay for small campus renovations, purchase of a new school bus and van, unexpected repairs, increase in financial aid, elastomeric coating of the building exterior to repair persistent leaks, increase in professional development funds, endowment support, strengthening the long-term stability of the school, and it gives the school needed financial flexibility.
