The Post Oak School (Houston Campus)
Unfortunately for the Jackson property, the public schools zoned in that area did not score well. However, the private schools around that neighborhood are rated as some of the highest in the city. If your child is around middle-school age (12-14) or about to enter high school by the time you move in, the Post Oak School will be the perfect fit. The high school section is an International Baccalaureate World School that can provide an International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma upon graduation. This guarantees that your teen is “recognized around the world and ensure an increased adaptability and mobility for IB students.” They are also advocates for the Montessori method which you can learn more about here on their website.
