At The Brandeis School of San Francisco, we believe that true learning happens only when knowledge is connected to purpose. We know that what our students learn at Brandeis today will matter to the world tomorrow, and we strive to educate people capable of making meaningful contributions. Our challenging K–8 academic environment is focused on relevance and rooted in Jewish values, traditions, and culture.

We make education matter for our students after Brandeis, and high schools welcome our graduates not just for their academic strength but also for their sense of purpose, community, and activism. Over 95 percent of our graduates are accepted into one of their top-choice high schools.

We have a multi-faceted campus that integrates outdoor and indoor spaces into a simple-to-navigate and welcoming place. With easy access to the school from all areas of San Francisco, there’s ample parking for student drop-off, pick-up, and events. The light-filled lobby acts both as the point where students begin school, and a place where parents share coffee and catch up before heading off to their respective days.

Students, families, faculty, and staff are embraced by our open and nurturing community, one that finds purpose and connection in Jewish thoughts, values, and tradition. O
ur teachers follow the best practices set by the most recent findings in educational research, experience, and a collaborative approach, and hold the highest standards for respectful relationships with peers and students. Our faculty and administrative team actively engage in ongoing professional development.
