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.
