Our approach is designed to empower each child to achieve independence by combining our hands-on curriculum with personalized learning to create an environment where curiosity flourishes, independence grows, and academic excellence is a natural outcome.

We want your child to see and believe: “I am capable!”

what makes us stand out.

How is the Guidepost Montessori approach different from conventional education?.

At Guidepost, we join with parents on their mission to help their child grow and live well. Together, we design an education to empower each child to build the knowledge, skills, and confidence she needs to craft an independent, flourishing life.

Though there are many differences between the conventional approach and Guidepost, here are some of the most important:

Conventional Education vs Guidepost Montessori
What is the Guidepost Mission?.

At Guidepost, our mission is to support each child in achieving her own independence. To do this, we help her gain the knowledge, build the skills, and craft the personal character she needs to flourish. Above all, our goal is to cultivate joy—in the pursuit of knowledge, in effort applied to work worth doing, in the achievements of herself and others, and in taking the steps to author her own life.

Learn about the key milestones we support—from infancy through high school.

Read more about why we educate for independence, and how we support independence for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and elementary-age children.

What are the outcomes of your programs?.

Montessori education is known world-wide for having positive impacts on both academics and social and emotional skills.

At Guidepost Montessori, when we design an environment to meet the developmental needs and interests of children alongside personalized care and support, the child can learn advanced skills at an accelerated pace.

Our students, for example, regularly learn to read by the time they’re 4-years-old and can perform all four math operations with 4-digit numbers by the end of their Kindergarten year.

The language and math skills of our kindergartners are on a par with what children in conventional programs learn in 3rd grade or beyond! What’s more, our students learn advanced academics joyfully—while simultaneously developing deep focus, self-discipline, and positive social skills.

Do your programs include Kindergarten?.

Yes! The third year of our Children’s House program, designed for 3- to 6-year-olds, is the capstone kindergarten year. In this year, the child has been well-prepared to experience an explosion of literacy, learn advanced math concepts, and use her hard-won ability to focus, problem-solve, and persist through challenges to then make advanced gains across the curriculum. Children who continue with Guidepost through Kindergarten are often well-ahead of their peers when they enter 1st grade.

Learn more about the next exciting stage: the Guidepost elementary program.

Following elementary, students continue on to our Montessori middle and high school, the Academy of Thought & Industry: a school that combines a classical liberal arts emphasis on history and great books, and a Montessori emphasis on independence and agency.

How does Guidepost partner with parents?.

At Guidepost, we want to make the best education the best for children and parents. This is why we provide year-round, extended-day programming at no extra cost, enabling consistent and uninterrupted access to the care and developmental support parents expect. We invite you into your child’s world—with daily photo and video updates, regular milestone meetings, and parent-child events that showcase your child’s progress. We work to understand your unique context and needs, so that we can provide support for milestones at home as well as at school.

In everything we do, we strive to cultivate joy as you watch your child grow!

Guidepost Castle Hills has been such a blessing to my daughter and our family! She started the first week the campus opened and has grown immensely since. I love how diverse the school is, the events they host and how supportive they’ve been with us through many different life events. Her teachers, Mrs. Jodi and Ms. Auanna are two of the most amazing guides. Children and parents alike love them so much! My daughter has always been a quick learner but this school has made her more independent and given her life skills that I know she’ll carry with her forever. She wakes up eager to go to class and never forgets to pray for her Guidepost family before going to sleep. It warms my heart as a mom to know how much she loves her school.

It's honestly one of the best programs my son has been enrolled in. In his short life we have tried 4 different places (Primrose, The Learning Experience, Carpe Diem, The Goddard School) . This by far is amongst the best. Within a couple of months my son knew his continents, days of the week, and months, etc. It's a great program accompanied by very sweet and knowledgeable teachers. The schedule is geared towards working parents which is a big plus!! The events they host are fun. I would definitely recommend this school.

Amazing staff with so much heart and such a caring mindset. It’s wonderful seeing our son get excited about going here, as well as seeing how much he has learned. The teachers really make an effort to engage with the kids, and develop them in a very individualized way. The management is really committed to providing a safe, fun, and loving environment and we’re very thankful to Mrs. Carmen and the whole team at Guidepost Castle Hills. If anyone is having second doubts about enrolling their child here, I highly recommend this location.

We are so thankful that our son has the opportunity to attend here. Everyone is welcoming and lovely. They have put us at ease with leaving him with someone else and through the transition phase of this new stage for us all. Our son has already grown in so many ways. You won’t be disappointed with the school, teachers and leaders here!
