Overview of School

The San Francisco School is an independent school, pre-K through eighth grade, with a commitment to a multicultural and inclusive community.  Suitably characterized by one 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, creativity, and a sense of social justice.  Students learn to think like disciplinarians in a field, consider big and central ideas, and can find and develop their own passions.  They graduate academically prepared, inquisitive, courageous, and eager for the challenges ahead.

The San Francisco School is committed to increasing staff diversity, both to reflect the high value SFS places on a multicultural understanding and for the direct benefit of each student.
