The Post Oak School5

Our children attend Post Oak School. The practical life skills they learned from Post Oak alone make the steep tuition worthwhile. At 18 months our first child was toilet trained, got and served herself her own snacks, cleared her plates, learned to work in a group setting with others, etc. It's all been pretty amazing. Our eldest is in a class with 3 - 5 year olds. The 5 year olds are doing long division. !! Great school. Great parents. Very happy as are our children.
The new high school is awesome! They are blocks away from some of the best museums in the country (Modern Art, Natural Science, etc) and the school takes full advantage of it. They cost more than other schools, but we are so glad we made the investment.
Overall a good school academically. Sorely lacking in art and music programs as a part of everyday curriculum. The physical education and Spanish programs are thin. Lots of teacher turnover the past couple of years. Parental involvement is strong. Expectations of pre-school age children is rather high.
Excellent Montessori school. We've had several children attend the school over the past 14 years. Great teachers. Good all around community of families generally well versed in the Montessori method and environment.
