Changing the world, one student at a time
We are a school where children find the joy in learning — 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 each individual child, to help them realize their limitless potential, and the opportunities they will have to create real and lasting change throughout their lifetime.
Hear from our South Beaverton Families
I absolutely LOVE Guidepost! I'm proud to be a Guidepost mama! I can see the immense growth in his independence, skills with his numbers, vocabulary, and general knowledge! This child sings songs about continents and tells me about adding numbers! And none of it feels pressured or stressful. It's organic, thoughtful, and just magic!
"Our son looks forward to going every day!"
Our son has been attending the Nido program for the last year, and we all love it!!! Great staff, location is great. Our son looks forward to going every day! As parents, we get multiple reports and photos each day. They do events throughout the year for both the kids and parents. Highly recommend here... highly recommend.
"Helping mold our child's curiosity and confidence"
Guidepost definitely fosters not only a safe and nurturing environment for children, but also helps build a sense of community. The school administration plans fun events for all families to enjoy. The school is also part of Transparent Classroom, which is essentially an online database for keeping track of your child's progress at the school. The database includes photos, tracks meals and bathroom trips, activities your child has worked on, and so much more.
We are so excited to have Guidepost in our community. But more importantly, we are so happy with the way they are helping mold our child's curiosity and confidence.
