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.

Welcome Prospective Families

Prospective TK-5 families are invited to sign up for one of our upcoming tours. All tours are at 8:30am.

Annual Giving Drive

We are excited to launch our first ever Cobb PTA Annual Giving Drive, and we hope that you’ll participate! 

Fundraisers are a lot of work, especially for a new organization just getting off the ground. This is the simplest type of fundraiser: asking our families to pitch in what they can to support programs here at Cobb. We hope to raise enough money support existing and new enrichment activities at Cobb, and to continue to support the students of Cobb.

We are asking all Cobb families to make a donation to the Cobb PTA, no matter the size. Even a few dollars makes a big difference to a small school like Cobb! 

Classes with 100% participation by Dec. 21 will receive a pizza party in January.

How to donate:

  • Donate cash or a check made to ‘Dr. William Cobb Elementary PTA’ in the annual giving drive envelope (available at the Cobb office) and put it in the blue PTA box in the main office. (If you are sending the envelope to school with your child, please let the teacher know so he or she knows to look for it and get it to the office.)
  • Donate online by clicking the button below. (Be sure to include your child's name and class in the "dedication" field if applicable.)
  • Ask family and friends to consider donating to the Cobb PTA during this season of giving. Donations can be made online or mailed to:

Dr. William Cobb Elementary PTA
2725 California St.
San Francisco, CA 94115

We are a 501c3 organization and your donation may be tax deductible. Our tax ID is 90-1185366. Receipts will be provided by email. Your donation may be eligible for employer matching through Benevity. 

Thank you so much for your support!

Cobb in the news


Read about a recent intern's experience at Cobb:


"Every single student I have had the privilege to work with at this school has sparked so much passion for teaching within me, and I continue to think about them in everything I do as I pursue my teaching credential."
