Each September, San Francisco Friends School enrolls 44 new Kindergartners, 10–20 new Middle–Schoolers, and a handful of students in other grades. These students and their families come to Friends with a diverse array of experiences, perspectives, and gifts. Each student and family brings a commitment to the life and spirit of our educational community, a desire for both academic excellence and social-emotional development, and a willingness to engage in a Quaker education.

Our Lower School includes Kindergarten through 4th Grade. Click here to learn more about the Lower School admissions process.

Our Middle School consists of 5th through 8th grades. Click here to learn more about the Middle School admissions process.

We hope you will share our delight in our compelling educational mission—a mission that encourages lifelong learning, reflection, service to others, and peaceful problem-solving.

If you would like any further information, don't hesitate to contact me in the Admissions Office. I look forward to getting to know your family throughout the admissions process.

Friends kids are kind and empathetic and can read a room. They know how to listen with care and have comfort around difficulty. They know themselves and are also able to hold their intellectual and personal lives in context within a larger world.”
