What began as a dream among friends, educators, and community members with an interest in Quaker education became a reality with 33 kindergartners entering our doors on September 3, 2002. With a vision for the Quaker traditions of academic excellence and thoughtful concern for the emotional and spiritual growth of children, a small group of individuals helped create the San Francisco Friends School. With tremendous generosity from this community, that vision became a reality for our children, and for generations of children to come.
As an independent school, San Francisco Friends School depends on financial donations from our community to sustain our outstanding academic program and diverse school community. Because tuition alone does not cover the full costs of educating students at SFFS, charitable donations help us attract and retain exceptional teachers, provide equipment for programs, and allow us to adjust tuition across a broad spectrum so that a Friends education may be accessible to all.
In our short history, our school community has built a culture of philanthropy and stewardship that we cherish. SFFS parents, alumni, alumni parents, grandparents, teachers, and friends all play an active role in building our school. There are many ways you can lend a hand in supporting our mission, and we welcome your interest and involvement!
