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.

Interview

After the application deadline, you will be contacted to schedule an interview for your child. Interviews for Primary children (2½–6 years old) and Elementary students will be held at the end of February. Middle School and High School interviews will be scheduled as needed.

Transcript

A transcript or a report card from a child's current school is required for students applying in grades 1–8. 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.
