The San Francisco Schoolhouse is conducting a search for a highly motivated, enthusiastic and collaborative flex teacher to join our new and growing school community. 

Do you have the leadership skills to work with students who love to learn, and who have a high sense of social responsibility?

The Schoolhouse is a growing, independent, K-8 school located in the Richmond District of San Francisco. The School’s intentionally small size, experienced and passionate teachers, experiential curriculum, and active parent participation model provide a unique opportunity for families seeking a community-minded progressive education that challenges and supports their child. Founded in 2011 by a small and dedicated group of teachers and parents and two students, the Schoolhouse now enrolls 80 students.

Teachers at the Schoolhouse lead mixed-grade classes. Currently the school is configured with a mixed Kindergarten/1st grade class, a mixed 2nd/3rd grade class, a stand alone 4th grade class, and one class that mixes students in 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade. As we grow, middle school will be a 6th/7th/8th mixed-grade class.
