Presidio Schools

Presidio School is a college preparatory school that offers a challenging classical education where artistic, literary and scientific course work all are meaningful parts of the core curriculum. Presidio offers an educational model in which the arts, supports and stimulates learning in other domains such as math, science and reading – which in turn, supports and stimulates learning and valuation of the arts. This creates a web of influence that has the best possible chance of improving the success of all students. To further enhance the personal development and academic success of each student, instruction is presented in a setting where it is the goal of all faculty and staff to nurture and support every student’s journey towards academic excellence. Students are taught the value of respect, responsibility, and diversity. The Presidio learning community encourages independence of thought and deed, while teaching the need for self-imposed limits so as not to infringe upon the rights and freedoms of other community members. As evidence of the success of this academic model, Presidio School is an “A” school and was selected in 2007 from over 120,000 public, charter, and private schools as a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence. Kristin Bannerman, deputy assistant secretary with the U.S. Department of Education cited Presidio’s high test scores and rigorous curriculum as the basis for the award. She stated, “Presidio is a model for the rest of the country.”
