why guidepost?

Our San Francisco school brings together the Montessori approach to building independence and foundational knowledge. We are now serving essential workers during the COVID-19 crisis with our Emergency Care for Essential Workers program.

  • Authentic Montessori
    The Montessori Approach

    The Montessori method of education offers a knowledge-rich environment, through a child-led model. Children learn joyfully, through working with carefully sequenced, hands-on materials. Your child’s enthusiastic exploration naturally leads to a solid foundation and advanced academics.

  • A Family Experience
    A Close-Knit Community

    Guidepost families tend to be friendly and welcoming folks, eager to make connections and form strong bonds. We think the education of our students is stronger when we can serve as a hub for such relationships, and we do all we can to foster a strong community in our area, with plenty of fun events and opportunities to meet and mingle.

  • A Convenient Campus
    A Dependable Partner

    We believe that an important part of our role is to serve as a support system for your family. We try to be here when you need us, with late pick-up hours and minimal school closures. And because the Montessori approach works best when manifested in a community of like minds, we hold regular campus events and get-togethers.
