The New School of San Francisco is a tuition-free public school designed in partnership with local educators, parents and community leaders. The school opened fall 2015 with kindergarten and first grades and will go through 12th grade when fully developed.

Learning at New School San Francisco is “hands-on, minds-on.” Our student-centered approach embraces each student’s curiosity and encourages learners to construct their own meaning and knowledge through hands-on experiences. New School San Francisco is diverse by design and is committed to practicing equity in all we do.

Lastly, our school makes a thirteen-year commitment to students and their families to ensure they thrive in school and beyond. 

New School San Francisco believes this approach will foster a deep love of learning and prepare students with the problem-solving and social emotional skills to confidently meet the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.
