Private School Directory

Finding the right fit for your child’s education is vital to academic and personal growth. Buzz-area residents are fortunate in that Houston is home to many of the nation’s top private schools, most of which are located right here in our neighborhoods. The Buzz Magazines Private School Directory, for Pre-K though high school, is a resource for our readers. It includes private schools that support our magazines through advertising. Our goal is to provide readers with a snapshot of each of these schools, as a starting point in the research process.

Find stories about a variety of local private and public schools – including articles written by students – here.
