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!

Our 2 year old daughter attends this school and we couldn't be happier with the space, curriculum and staff. The enrollment process was easy and the staff is knowledgeable and professional. The school and curriculum overall seem really organized as well. We get pictures everyday showing the types of "work" that our daughter does during the day, such as washing windows, sorting shapes, putting puzzles together, painting at the easel, etc. She does between 5-9 concentrated activities per day! Guidepost Montessori South Beaverton doesn't just watch our daughter during the day, they are teaching her self-reliance and responsibility and stimulating her growing brain in a way that is age-appropriate and rigorous. She also has a great time! We couldn't recommend this place more!

We've been a Guidepost family at South Beaverton for almost 2 years and we love our school and staff at GMSB! We've attended other daycares/schools previously but the staff, leadership, and curriculum is why we choose to stay here. All the guides are so welcoming, warm, and make it a point to learn the children's names and their families. The social-emotional skills they are learning everyday is one of the factors most important to me when choosing a school. The guides are very intentional, modeling empathetic and kind language with the kids. With the consistency at both home and school, my kids have developed skills to communicate respectfully with others and discuss their feelings and emotions. It has abled them to take care of their self and community. My husband and I love learning from the kids what their lessons were each day. I was amazed when my oldest was 3, knowing the names of all 7 continents and able to point them out on a map. My 2 year old proudly counts to 10 in three languages (English, Spanish, and Mandarin) and can independently dress himself. Most important, at the end of the day, my kids are happy there. When I pick them up, they're smiling and excited to tell me about their day. They've built friendships both in and outside of school with families at SB and we're so thankful to be a part of this community!
