General School Mission

The Post Oak School is a Montessori school. The school's philosophy is inspired by the educational thought of Dr. Maria Montessori; the models for the classrooms and for the developmental learning materials were created by her. The school continues her work in developmental psychology and education.

As Montessori educators, we believe that each child is born to be a learner, and that the full potential of each person is realized only through an ordered, challenging, nurturing environment that is physical, intellectual, social, and spiritual.

We believe that the child and his/her needs are the central and commanding focus of the learning process. It is the role of the school to observe, to know, and to defend the child as he/she proceeds through the stages of development.

We see in each child, the future of society, of our nation, of our planet. The child in the process of fundamental development has unlimited possibilities, and the future rests on our ability to cultivate this potential.

The Post Oak School welcomes students from diverse social, economic, ethnic, racial, and religious backgrounds.
