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.

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!

discover the benefits of our spanish immersion programs.

Children under the age of six absorb language effortlessly, which is why we are pleased to offer bilingual environments. In our Spanish Immersion program, children learn both Spanish and English literacy skills, however, the prevailing language spoken throughout the day is Spanish. The overall emphasis on Spanish rapidly increases fluency, as children feel naturally compelled to communicate with their Spanish-speaking guides. Learn more about our Spanish Immersion program here

I have been consistently impressed with Guidepost Montessori, where both my six-month-old and 3.5 year old attend. The guides here are not only deeply caring and loving but also exhibit a high level of professionalism and expertise. They actively engage with my children, fostering a nurturing and educational environment. Whenever I approach them with questions or concerns, their responses are insightful and helpful. I wholeheartedly recommend Guidepost Montessori to any parent seeking a supportive and enriching environment for their children

Guidepost at Copper Hill has been fantastic for our 3 year old son. Especially after the new administration took over and revamped the campus over the spring of this year. They hired more experienced Guides (teachers) and they continue to make sure there is enough support in place at all times. We have been there since January of 2022 and within the first few months the school experienced some turnover with Guides and staff but Guidepost headquarters addressed it quite quickly and made many necessary changes. They literally flew in support from the corporate level as well as very experienced Montessori Guides from around the country. It was quite impressive to see. My son LOVES it here and he is learning so much. The school is set in such a beautiful location with nature all around it. So many other schools are in a parking lot surrounded by other busy stores and businesses but this is in a nice private location. Thank you Gina, Ashley, Ms Ravelle, Ms Arianna, Ms Emma, Ms Mona, Ms Jasmine... I could go on and on! The care you take of our son and the other children here mean the world to us.
