Changing the world, one student at a time
We are a school where children learn to read — and thus make it possible for them to continue learning for the rest of their lives.
To think mathematically.
To solve problems.
To create things.
To encounter great literature that inspires their character development.
To build themselves as capable, efficacious beings.
To place themselves in history and in society.
To spark meaningful friendships and deep personal values that last a lifetime.
Our goal at Guidepost Montessori is to serve the human potential in each child, to help them realize the cultural awakening happening around us, and the opportunities they will have to create real and lasting change throughout their lifetime.
What sets us apart from traditional schools
Certified Montessori teachers (guides)
A deliberate terminological shift from "teacher," the adults in the classroom are referred to as guides. "Guide" emphasizes the role the educator plays in the classroom: leading the children in their academic and social development, but in a way that centers the child’s individual development. The work of the guide is to actively nurture and support the child in what is fundamentally a self-directed process of development.
Every classroom has a Lead Guide and an Assistant Guide. All of our Lead Guides here at Guidepost Montessori are required to be AMI, AMS, or PMI Montessori certified. The Lead Guide in each of our classrooms is a teacher who helps direct the child's activities academically, emotionally, and physically in a prepared and peaceful environment that challenges each child to reach their fullest potential.
The Prepared Environment (our classrooms)
At Guidepost Montessori, each classroom is carefully designed to empower independence and inspire exploration in children of that age group. We call this the prepared environment, and in addition to the student and the classroom guide, it is the “third teacher.”
When you enter a Montessori classroom, you will notice that the furniture is child-sized, catering to the smallest child right up to the largest child, and all the learning materials are designed for that specific age group. This aids independence, precision, and self-confidence. Read more about the prepared environment here.
Our school in Hurst offers nurturing and prepared classroom environments for infants, toddlers, preschool, kindergarten, and elementary age children.
Unlocking Human Potential
Children who attend Montessori schools are more likely to take on challenging tasks when given the choice, as they start to become cognizant of the relationship between taking on difficult tasks and growing as a human being. This is called mastery orientation or a growth mindset, which is something even adults strive for: the desire for self-improvement.
We offer learning materials and classroom designs that encourage active exploration and independent learning by the child. Children can freely choose what to work on and where to work, so long as they use the learning materials for their designated purpose. With the freedom to move and choose, children develop internal discipline, social awareness, and unlock their ability to pursue knowledge without limits.

A Peek Inside our School
At the heart of our school is our belief that children thrive when given freedom and responsibility in environments prepared for them.
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.
The Montessori approach to human development is based on the belief in the potential of the child, and on the belief that it is only the child who can realize this potential. To grow up well is to grow up to be increasingly independent, capable, confident, happy and secure. At Guidepost, we are the village that supports you in raising your child.
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 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.

Language Immersion Options
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 ourSpanish Immersion program here (see Mandarin Immersion).
If you are interested in a dual language classroom, please let someone from our team know and we would be happy to provide you information for any available options!
