School Notes

  • Presidio Hill offers our students a challenging, project-based curriculum that attends to their intellectual and social-emotional needs and prepares them to be agents of positive social change. Guided by a skilled and caring faculty, students learn to be confident and curious, to be creative problem solvers and critical thinkers. Learning at PHS is collaborative and active.
  • We place great value on the arts as both an academic discipline and an essential element of a meaningful life. Situated on the edge of the Presidio, our school takes full and frequent advantage of the park`s 1500 acres; whether they are studying science, art, social studies, or literature, the Presidio is a rich and vital "classroom" to our students.
  • Our vibrant, diverse, and supportive community allows students to explore their unique voices, traits, and talents; our emphasis on the importance of community and justice encourages students to develop self-awareness, personal character, resilience, and an understanding of their role as stewards of the planet and citizens of the world.

School Reviews

5  
Our son transferred to PHS from a larger school that wasn't a good fit for him and we have watched him blossom since. Its small class size means that his teachers really know him as a learner, daily time in the Presidio has fostered curiosity and love of nature, and the warm community has benefitted our whole family. We love this school!
