Hiring decisions at The San Francisco School are based on applicants’ professional experience and promise; their match with the core school values of culture, community, and diversity; and their commitment to grow in their practice.
Teachers are chosen based on their knowledge of best pedagogical and developmental practices. We seek teachers whose practice is student-centered and inquiry-based: teachers who are excellent communicators and collaborators, and who can serve as compassionate, engaged guides for students.

The selection process includes interviews, school visits, reference checks, and sample teaching lessons or assignments, if applicable. Interview committees generally include at least one administrator, teachers, and a parent/guardian.
New staff members are welcomed to the school through a dedicated orientation, and often have the opportunity to spend time with the person they’re replacing in order to promote a smooth transition. New teachers have the additional support of our curriculum guide, and a community of experienced faculty members who are always happy to offer help and advice. In recruitment and hiring, The San Francisco School is committed to policies that will increase staff diversity, both to reflect the high value SFS places on cultural competency, and for the direct benefit of each student.
All staff participate in ongoing professional development on- and off-campus, attending workshops and conferences. The School provides stipends for mentors, reimbursements for coursework, honorariums for summer work, and sabbaticals for extended study. Teachers hone their practice looking at current research, at their own instructional approach, and at student work.
