About Us

Presidio Hill School is an independent, progressive school providing San Francisco and Bay Area children a transitional kindergarten to eighth grade education.

Established in 1918, Presidio Hill School is the oldest progressive school in California. In keeping with that heritage, Presidio Hill continues to offer its students a challenging, project-based curriculum that prepares them for the future by attending to their current developmental needs. Guided by an expert and caring faculty, students learn to be confident and curious, to be creative problem solvers and independent, critical thinkers. Learning is collaborative and active.

A vibrant, diverse and supportive community allows students to explore their unique voices, traits and talents and each individual is honored and respected. An emphasis on the importance of community and service 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.
