Tours at the Bissonnet Campus (Young Children's Community through 6th grade) are scheduled Tuesday through Thursday at 9:00 a.m. or 10:30 a.m. during the school year beginning in October. We highly recommend that all parents involved in choosing the school for a child tour before submitting an application.

The Post Oak School

After all parents involved in the school decision have taken a tour, you will receive the link to our online application. A non-refundable $100 application fee must accompany the application. Applications will not be accepted from a Post Oak School family with a delinquent balance.

The application deadline is January 12, 2018. High School applications received after that date will be considered on a rolling basis. Please contact Associate Admission Director Endira Hawkins for more High School information or click here to apply.

Parent Education

Prospective parents are strongly encouraged to immerse themselves in the Montessori approach by attending both parent education programs and prospective parent classes. Current Post Oak parents who plan to enroll younger siblings are invited to attend and share their experiences. These classes are held on Tuesday mornings and Monday evenings.

School Visits

Children ages 3 to 4 who are entering Primary will be invited for a classroom visit on Primary Admission Day on February 2, 2018. Younger children (2½ to 3) are not required to visit the school. School visits for applicants five years old through High School are scheduled on an individual basis.

Transcript

A transcript or a report card from a child's current school is required for students applying in grades 1 to 8. We require the two most recent progress reports and the most recent achievement-test scores. Additional admission forms for the High School are required, please click here for the list of required documents.

Teacher Recommendation

Sign a confidential teacher-recommendation form, obtained from the Post Oak website, which should be completed by your child's current teacher.

Admission Decisions

The head of school appoints admission committees whose responsibilities are to examine each prospective student's application, test scores, and academic record, and make enrollment recommendations to the head of school. Admission decisions are released after re-registration of current students and the completion of student interviews at the end of February. Decision letters will be mailed to families by mid-March.
