Choosing a school that goes through High School was important to me too. We applied to two schools for my son, The Post Oak School and a school that is PK3-12th grade. He was accepted to both, and choosing was an agonizing experience. I love Montessori, but I was deterred by the fact that the school did not extend beyond the 8th grade. Private school competition is fierce, and I was worried about my son not gaining admission to a good private school, so we chose the non Montessori route.
My son's school is on the fringe of Spring Branch, and I can reach downtown in about 15 minutes.
