Admissions

Welcome to The Brandeis School of San Francisco, where we believe that true learning is connected to purpose and we endeavor to educate young people capable of making meaningful contributions to the world around them. I am excited to introduce you to our school and to meet your family!

At Brandeis, we strive to “make it matter” every day by applying contemporary and forward-thinking teaching ideas to everything from sports and athletics to art and writing, math and science, overnight trips, community service projects, and our dual-language curriculum. We believe that resilience is a critical life skill, and we teach our students to embrace both failure and success through exploration and tackling challenges.

Our school is deeply rooted in Jewish traditions and values, and we proudly celebrate the many ways of being Jewish, encouraging students to wrestle with ideas, concepts, and traditions. Our community is diverse, and we are not affiliated with any particular movement. Our families come from a broad range of backgrounds, including interfaith and non-Jewish.

We also welcome students from all cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds, family structures, levels of observance, and ethnicities. Our community thrives on respect, friendship, and shared purpose. At Brandeis, diversity is not just a principle; it’s a practice. We know our students as individuals and human beings, and our students respond to each other in kind.

This includes our admissions process. We know each family is different and that finding the right school for your child is a serious process. We host a variety of events to provide you with a well-rounded sense of who we are, and we also enjoy getting to know you and your child. Throughout this site, you will find different kinds of information to help you learn more about our admissions process and our school in general.

As a parent and an admissions director, I know the school search process entails a lot of research, time, and great leaps of faith. We take your interest very seriously and are honored to have you explore The Brandeis School of San Francisco.
When you're ready, please get in touch. I look forward to meeting you, your child, and your family.
