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 Tigard Families
We love this school! Our daughter is in one of the children's House rooms and is very happy there. We've had her at two other preschools before we got into this one, and she is thriving here, and I finally feel good about dropping her off in the morning knowing she'll be in good hands. The teachers are wonderful and help them learn and foster friendships with the other kids, which is what my shy daughter needed to come out of her shell. Planning on keeping her here until she ages out!
"A wonderful choice for our family"
This school has been a wonderful choice for our family. Our daughter started at 18 months and loves coming to school so much that she cries on the weekends when we don't go to school. The Montessori curriculum is amazing, and my daughter is growing into a confident and independent learner who loves exploring materials and learning new things! Her guides are amazing and love our daughter like she is their own!
"Guidepost has been a perfect fit"
Guidepost has been a perfect fit for our pre-schooler! The staff at Guidepost are truly amazing. The guides are compassionate, understanding, and informative. I love the app they use to provide daily updates about what my little one is learning. Since enrolling at Guidepost, my daughter's independence has increased, she's learned skills to more effectively express her emotions when she's upset, and she has learned so many things! Each day on our drive home she tells me about her daily artwork, the fun playground, and the new lessons she learned.
Aside from the education component, the community is phenomenal. The school has hosted multiple virtual events, including pumpkin painting and hot cocoa in October, and a book fair!
