Parent/Guardian Community

Presidio Hill School takes pride in its diverse and inclusive parent community. Families from all across the city and beyond are attracted to Presidio Hill because of its commitment to progressive education and our values of social responsibility, community, compassion and integrity.

Parents & Guardians Association 

Presidio Hill promotes a strong partnership between families and school. Each parent is a member of the Parents & Guardians Association (PGA), whose mission is to create a welcoming, supportive environment in which all families feel connected to the school. The PGA also serves as a liaison between parents and the school, facilitates school-wide communication and coordinates parent involvement in school activities.

In many ways, parents are the backbone of the Presidio Hill experience, and it is their dedication and involvement that drive many of the activities that are so beloved at Presidio Hill. Every parent or guardian is asked to provide a minimum of 24 hours of volunteer service to the school each year, or a day in the life of your child. (See Volunteering for more information.)

What we do

Throughout the year, the PGA focuses on community building by organizing seasonal special events. Highlights include our Fall Socials, where new and returning parents come together, and May Festival, a classic celebration and long-standing tradition showcasing music, poetry and dance. These events give families an opportunity to engage with the school and build lasting friendships within the community.

The PGA also oversees many ongoing volunteer activities, including Friday Coffee and Soup-Making for Faculty & Staff. These important traditions further strengthen the bonds between the school and its families.
