Happier. Healthier. Smarter.

The Apple Tree School is one of the most effective private elementary schools in Houston. We have over 40 years of experience in teaching early childhood education. We provide a superior education in a safe, home-like atmosphere where children of all ages thrive. Apple Tree students are happier, healthier, and smarter. We believe wholeheartedly that there are no limits to learning!

Our Mission Statement

The Apple Tree School is committed to providing a school experience that will enhance the quality of each child’s life by being sensitive to their individual needs and provide developmentally appropriate learning experiences. We provide opportunities for children to reach their highest potential, develop a positive attitude of self, and acquire a value system that manifests itself throughout the child’s life.

Our Philosophy

A child must touch, feel, see, taste, smell, hear, and spill a little milk in order to grow. In other words, we believe in education outside of screens and books unlike other private schools. Our children plant and maintain their own organic gardens, work with their hands, express themselves on the canvas and in clay, learn how to communicate with others, and see what a bit of work can do from start to finish, truly connecting them into the world while being safe and sound.

What Makes the Apple Tree School Special?

Quite simply, every Apple Tree student is taught that he/she is special and important through individualized attention and contributions to their class. The school was designed and built to provide a home-like atmosphere in which pre-school age children thrive and learn. The teachers and staff at The Apple Tree School make every effort to see that each student receives two precious gifts:

  1. A secure and successful self image
  2. A true love for learning

The teachers at The Apple Tree School are also special. Not only are they among the most experienced and qualified teachers in early childhood education, but also because they love their profession and truly care about each child’s development. The teachers at The Apple Tree School have decades of collective experience and stay up on the most effective teaching methods to ensure that your little one is thriving.
