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.

If you are inquiring late for the 2020-2021 school year or are from out of town, please email Robyn to find out about how to learn more about our school at this time.


School Tours

Experience classrooms in action

Our group tours for Transitional Kindergarten through 8th Grade begin with a presentation from our Head of School and Division Directors and disperse to classrooms for observations of classrooms in action. Group tours have ended for this season, reach out to Robyn for alternatives at this time.



Open Houses

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 3rd - 8th Grade  are encouraged to join their parents/guardians at an open house. Younger children will likely get restless. Reservations are required.  


Other Fall Admission Events

PHS Walkathon

Come watch one of our favorite all school events - the PHS Walkathon! Meet Kelly and Robyn at the picnic tables adjacent to Presidio Wall playground, where Walkathon viewing is ideal. The Walkathon 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!​

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Information Night

This event is for prospective families interested in learning more our approach to 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.

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. Due to the popularity of this event, we can only accommodate prospective students and their parent & guardians.


If you are from out of town, please reach out to the Admission Department and we will contact you directly to set up a visit when you are in the area.
