Every year, the Middle School students spend one week dedicated to exploring Houston and all the things our city has to offer. The students were divided into four groups, each of which focused on one important aspect of Houston. This year, the students learned about Interfaith Houston, Global Houston, Houston H20, and Artful Houston.
Post Oak students are not limited by the walls of a classroom. They are encouraged to grow their minds and get to know the world around them, from observing nature, discovering their passions outside of books and lectures, and taking on work for a more peaceful society.
Opportunities abound for Post Oak students to explore and learn about the region in which they live. Students in Elementary begin taking short trips, while Middle School and High School students take on service learning and internships in the Museum District and beyond.
Just a plane ride away from the hub of Houston, Post Oak students join programs that take them on historical, cultural, and environmental learning adventures. And our own state of Texas offers paleontological treasures and coastal excursions within a day's drive.
Passports? Check. Our students have the opportunity to travel internationally for field schools, cultural exchanges, Montessori Model United Nations conferences, and enriching experiences that they will remember for a lifetime.
Europe Upper Elementary classes join together for this exciting four-day adventure to Nature’s Classroom Institute (NCI) in New Ulm, TX. Each year students experience new curriculum and activities while also anticipating the fun traditions, games and challenges that make this outdoor school special.
Asia The highlight of overnight travel in Elementary is the 6th grade trip to Williamsburg. This uniquely developed and operated township serves as an ideal setting to experience and study American history. This week-long excursion is packed with too many events, programs, and meals to mention here.
Creativity is a complex word to define. The dictionary tells us it is "the ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods, interpretations, etc." It also involves originality, progressiveness, and imagination
The world is also a much bigger place with many more people, and we need to have infinite patience with each other as we go forward. Our students will face challenges we cannot even imagine, but so did we and so did our parents, and so did our grandparents. Post Oak students will be ready. We are going to make sure that they are rooted with skills that allow them to grow, branch out, and like the leaves on the tree—reach for the sun.
