Strategic Plan

Fulfilling Our Humanitarian Promise

In 1966, a spirited group of preschool teachers and parents conceived of a new school: a diverse community coming together as a village to raise adventurous, compassionate children. They imagined The San Francisco School graduates as humanitarians with a deep sense of responsibility toward others, and as courageous learners with a drive towards personal excellence. In the 50 years since, our city and our world have changed, and so has our school. But our vision for SFS has remained steadfast - people and community are at the heart of all we do.

Over a period of 18 months, a committee of Board members, faculty and staff, alumni, and parents met to make a five year strategic plan. In this age of rapid acceleration and growing inequities, we resolved to create a plan that stays focused on people, while also embracing technology as a tool for creativity, innovation, and productivity. At the forefront of our plan was accepting the responsibility of financial sustainability and growth.

We are thrilled to share the introduction to our Strategic Plan with you which debuted at the All School Meeting on September 25, 2017.
