San Francisco Community Alternative School is a kindergarten through eighth grade school which strives to create a learning environment where all students can develop the skills and tools they need to become effective decision makers and productive citizens in today's world.
Since our beginning in 1972, we have and to construct a strong support system for the personal growth of each student. The staff and community work together to learn about and practice antiracist, culturally conscious and inclusive ways of being to create a school culture that supports all students to meet our high standards and goals of excellence.
In our effort to provide all students with a meaningful and relevant education, the program at San Francisco Community School focuses on developing and implementing an interdisciplinary challange-based approach to learning. Students spend half the school year (two nine week sessions) in their project classes. We believe these stratergies help raise overrall student achievment while also addressing and redressing inequities in achievement, performance and school experience.
