Tours & Open Houses

San Francisco Friends School offers a variety of opportunities for you to learn about our mission and programs. We recommend that you take a tour and/or attend one of our open houses in order to help you in your selection process. 

We ask that children entering our Kindergarten program in the fall of 2020 are 5 years old by August 1, 2020. Due to the large number of families with children eligible for Kindergarten admission for the fall of 2020, we are unable to accommodate parents of children who would be too young for our program next fall on our school tours. We very much appreciate your understanding and cooperation and look forward to meeting you in the future.

Registration is required for these events.

After you request information here, you will be automatically emailed the link to our online scheduler. 

Open Houses

Open Houses are held on evenings at Friends for prospective parents and guardians (no children, please.) These programmed events provide a deeper look into our philosophy, programs, and over-all school life. The focus will be on the teaching of math, science, reading and writing. Our Director of Community Engagement and our middle school students will share information about our students' stewardship projects. You will hear from teachers, students and administrators, including our Head of School, and have a chance to meet some of our current parents. The open houses are from 6:30 - 8:45 pm.
