The Schoolhouse is a new, independent, K-8 school located in the Richmond District of San Francisco. Our intentionally small size, experienced and passionate teachers, experiential curriculum, and active parent participation provide a unique opportunity for families seeking a community-minded progressive education that challenges and supports their child. Founded in 2011 by two teachers and two parents with two students, the Schoolhouse now enrolls 70 students.
San Francisco Schoolhouse is an intentionally small school community where young people are deeply known as individuals; where the academic, social, and emotional development of students is paramount; and where children are encouraged, and empowered to realize their full creative and engaged selves. At Schoolhouse, talented and dedicated teachers foster students’ agency, nurture their curiosity, and ignite their passions through meaningful experiential learning.
