During the lower school years, we focus on helping our students obtain a strong foundation in core academic subjects, while making meaningful connections to each other, their teachers, and their community as a whole.
We are deeply committed to the social, spiritual, and physical growth of our students. As a community that embraces the concept of radical kindness, we teach our students to develop compassion, tolerance, and mutual respect for others.
Additionally, The Brandeis School of San Francisco Teacher Residency Program allows new and experienced teachers to develop their teaching skills under the guidance of lead teachers. Residents grow their practices through hands-on experience in the classroom guided by goal-oriented mentorship from their lead teachers. The resident-mentor relationship fosters a community of intellectual curiosity and expansion in which all teachers can learn from one another through collaboration, discussion, and reflection.
