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 through post-high school, has been a valuable resource to our residents and readers, both in print and online, for many years. This list is not intended to be an exhaustive list of all private schools. Instead, our goal is to provide readers with a snapshot of each school, as a starting point in the research process. Additionally, see our Schools section for more articles related to schools, and check out our popular School Buzz blog for stories about local high schools written from students’ perspectives.
