Get Started and Visit Us
Presidio Hill School invites you to learn more about our program, our philosophy of education, and our vibrant community with a visit to the school.
We offer several events in the fall and winter, and we encourage prospective families to attend an event or two to get a firsthand look at what makes Presidio Hill School so special.
Experience classrooms in action
School tours are given during the school day and are an opportunity to see our classrooms in action. Please select the grade band corresponding with year of entry 2019-2020. If you are an out of town applicant family and can not make it to one of our scheduled events, please send us an inquiry and we will contact you.

Explore philosophy & curriculum, meet parents & students
Open houses are offered outside of regular school hours. They are designed to provide a more in-depth look at progressive education, our program, and community. During the two-hour event you will hear from our Head of School, visit teachers in their classrooms, meet current parents, and hear from our middle school students. You should plan to attend for the full two hours. Children in grade 3 and older are encouraged to join their parents/guardians at an open house. Younger children will likely get restless. Reservations are required.

Other Admission Events
Come watch one of our favorite all school events - the PHS Walkathon! Meet Kelly and Robyn at the picnic tables adjacent to Julius Kahn playground, where Walkathon viewing is ideal. The Walkathon, whose theme this year is "Rock the Walk," is a spirited culmination to our student-led fundraiser. It begins with an all-school song and features enthusiastic laps around the field for a full hour. Come by for as long as you like and behold the entire school body - and a throng of parent volunteers - in action!
Playground & Presidio Playdate
Yes, bring your child!! In this 'progressive playdate' we'll first spend a few minutes exploring the PHS playground (there's always something to discover). Then we'll all walk to the Presidio National Park, five minutes from campus. There you'll have a chance to explore some of the ares our students visit regularly and quickly come to love. A few current families will join us for play and conversation, and we'll be guided through the Presidio by our first-grade teacher Natalie. Due to the popularity of this event, we can only accommodate prospective students and their parent & guardians. At this time we have started a waitlist for this event. If a space opens up we will contact you off of our waitlist.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Information Night
This event is for prospective families interested in learning more about the approaches we are taking on diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) at Presidio Hill School. The evening provides visitors an opportunity to meet current Presidio Hill parents, students, faculty and staff, as well as ask questions about DEI at the school.
If you are from out of town and can not attend one of our events below, please send us an inquiry and we will contact you directly to set up a visit when you are in the area.
