Our Campus

Guidepost Montessori in Foothill Ranch holds a special place in our hearts. It is just around the corner from our first humble office, where a small team of founders first hatched the idea for our mission-driven organization, dedicated to the spread of Montessori education. Our own children are enrolled at the Foothill Ranch school, and our parent community reflects the inclusive, innovative, entrepreneurial spirit of Guidepost itself. It's also the home of our flagship elementary lab school, where our close-knit community of students are the first to benefit from active curriculum and program development work, supported by our central team of academic experts and mentors. This little school is a hidden gem, and a hot-house for the Montessori spirit. We look forward to welcoming your family to this very special community.

Our beautiful campus and welcoming community is the perfect place for your child to explore her own potential.

Guidepost Montessori classrooms are light, airy, calming, aesthetically beautiful spaces. Each material is carefully chosen and carefully displayed — to inspire and entice your child to explore.

Elementary Classrooms

Your elementary-aged child uses the materials and activities of the classroom as a window to the world. Her developing imagination gives her the ability to visualize the distant past, the far reaches of the universe, and the tiniest particle of matter.

The materials in the classroom spark that imagination and inspire her to plan outings, initiate project-based learning, and delve deep into literature, science, and history.

The elementary child's mind gradually develops the ability to abstract complex ideas, so over time your child will work less with the concrete materials and more with conceptual ideas.
