Each September, San Francisco Friends School enrolls 44 new kindergartners, a 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.

The journey to enrolling in San Francisco Friends School begins here.
