School Reviews

When we selected a preschool for our kids 11 years ago, we didn't realize how important seemingly small things such as reporting the day's lunch menu, building with milk crates, and learning the sounds of the week would be in instilling in our children a lifelong passion for learning, respect for others, and sense of personal responsibility. It is amazing how much our children have learned learned and grown from the caring, loving, intelligent teachers and staff who engage and empower them. The San Francisco School has celebrates the kids' imaginations, challenges them intellectually, and helps make them kinder, better people. As we tour high schools for our oldest who is graduating, our decision to send our kids to SFS has been reaffirmed- We have seen a disproportionate number of SFS alumni leading tours and sitting on admission panels at their high schools. They are articulate, intelligent and confident. We see in these alumni the enduring influence of SFS. It's the best!
