Welcome! Our school is a nurturing environment that inspires each student to thrive academically, emotionally, socially, intellectually, and creatively so all students can be empowered to achieve their highest potential.

As a small school in the Lower Pacific Heights neighborhood in San Francisco serving students from preschool through grade 5, we benefit from small classes, a dedicated staff, and a strong multigenerational community.

Tours for prospective families begin in October! Please sign up online, or you can email Principal Chad Slife at slifec@sfusd.edu or call the school at 415-749-3505.
