Welcome to the new Higher Ground Site

Higher Ground is pleased to showcase its newly designed website. In the coming weeks we'll be fleshing it out with content, posting essays on education and more information about our projects. We'll also be sharing some exciting news right here on our blog. It's been an incredible year and a particularly incredible last few months.

Higher Ground started in March of 2016 with the mission of pedagogical revolution. We’re out to mainstream and modernize a high-structure, high-autonomy approach to education, one best captured by the Montessori early childhood pedagogy. You can read more in depth about our mission and story.

We couldn’t be more proud of what we've accomplished in nine short months. Some teaser highlights:

  • In September, we opened our first school under our Guidepost brand: our Prosperity campus.

  • Two days ago we opened our second school under our Guidepost brand: Guidepost Montessori Foothill Ranch. The campus's classrooms—photos to come soon!—are stunningly beautiful and infused with thoughtfulness and precision about the Montessori pedagogy. This campus will also host our ongoing Montessori elementary lab program, which kicked off in September.

  • We're weeks away from opening two more Guidepost schools.

  • We're on the verge of securing our first site for our Polis brand of international Montessori schools.

  • We're about to close our very successful seed funding round.

We can't wait to share more, and are thrilled to be entering 2017 at full speed.
