FROM THE Education

School of the Woods, the oldest continuously operating Montessori school in the Houston area, provides an educational program proven and strengthened through more than four decades of successful experience. 

The Main campus is nestled cozily in a close-in neighborhood in Spring Branch approximately 1 mile north of I-10 off Wirt Rd. The campus is heavily wooded and landscaped with native Texas plants. The sylvan environment is an integral part of the curriculum. The buildings were designed to integrate with the natural environment of the campus. They are cottage style structures sized to fit the needs of the students. 

In addition to a robust academic program, students at School of the Woods participate in both sports & the arts. Music, Theater, Dance and Performance Arts, as well as Volleyball, Soccer, Basketball, Swimming and Track & Field are all available! 


You will find School of the Woods to be a diverse learning community at all grade levels from preschool through college preparatory. Each school day, students come here from more than 60 different zip codes throughout greater Houston.

More than 3,000 of our alumni have then gone forward to excel at more than 75 colleges and universities all across America and beyond.

Our School has been serving Houston since 1962 as a leading Montessori education resource.
