Red Bridge is an independent K-8 school in San Francisco

Red Bridge Description

Red Bridge is an independent K-8 school that opened in September 2020 in San Francisco. Red Bridge was founded as a demonstration school for a new model of education designed to foster a sense of agency in students as opposed to traditional schools that are designed to reinforce compliance. Student ownership is built into every system and structure of the school, so that students gradually take on more responsibility for their learning. This puts every student on the path to becoming a lifelong learner – so that no matter what the future looks like, they have the capacity to adapt and flourish. Red Bridge strives to have a student body that reflects the diversity of our community in San Francisco. Our mission, location and individualized tuition model all support this goal. We believe that a diverse learning community is a necessary part of a high-quality education. We aim to have a faculty that reflects this diversity as well. Candidates from underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply. Teachers at Red Bridge are models of lifelong learning: collaborating to design meaningful learning experiences for students, closely observing children’s development and needs, and creating and reflecting on innovative routines and systems. Red Bridge currently serves forty students in the equivalent of Kindergarten – Fifth Grade. We will continue to grow and age-up with our student body until we are a full K-8 school.
