About us

The San Francisco School is a pre-k through 8th grade independent, coeducational day school. Founded in 1966, the school is an established, vibrant educational community with a multicultural enrollment of 270 students, an experienced and dedicated faculty, and supportive and involved parents.

The preschool program centers on the ideas of Maria Montessori. The elementary and middle school program reflects the ideals of a progressive, child-centered approach.

Suitably characterized by a parent as "an urban school with a village atmosphere," the school embraces San Francisco's ethnic, cultural, and economic diversity. Our progressive approach to education encourages children to develop self-reliance, solid academic skills, integrity, and a sense of social values.

The school is respected for a strong sense of community, personal attention to students, and a dynamic arts program. Our students graduate academically prepared, inquisitive, compassionate, and eager for the challenges ahead.
