Where children permanently
fall in love with learning.

We are an independent, progressive school whose mission
is to help children discover and develop their full potential.

Discover the Presidio Hill School Difference

The Presidio Is Our Front Yard

Our campus is located just steps away from this national landmark, whose wooded trails, scenic hills and bountiful open spaces provide a rich natural backdrop for unique educational opportunities.


Happy Kids, Engaged Families

Small class sizes, one class per grade in the lower school and two sections per grade in the middle school, and an intimate, collaborative environment ensure that every child in our community is known and nurtured, that all families are appreciated and involved.


100 Years of Progressive Education

PHS has fulfilled its progressive mission for 100 years. The longest continually operating independent progressive school in California and the site of the Center for Progressive Education, we are pioneers in child-centered, personalized learning.






“I love how my child is appreciated, celebrated, and challenged at PHS”.
