Guidepost Schools

The ultimate goal of an education is authentic, holistic independence. At Guidepost Montessori, we offer this to your child, in the fullest possible sense.

Inside our vibrant school communities

In every child lives limitless human potential. For the child to realize that potential is to confidently grow and to joyously learn.

Welcome to our classroom!

A Guidepost Montessori classroom is full of activities that your child will love! These enticing activities are just at your child's level, and are designed to help them joyfully build something that will last a lifetime: character, understanding and a budding sense of self.

Build Foundational Knowledge from the Very Beginning

A Guidepost Montessori classroom offers each child a rich and extensive knowledge base, shared through a carefully-sequenced curriculum designed with the flexibility to adapt to a child's pace and interests. Each student's work is fueled by their own motivation to learn.

An Environment Prepared to Build Agency

Children are born with an eagerness to explore the world, learning through all of their senses. The Montessori classroom offers your child the opportunity to explore, to act independently, and to follow one's own interests. With mastery of each new skill, your child's confidence grows.

Montessori describes the child’s message to the adult: “Help me to do it by myself!”
