We offer accredited education programs for students in preschool, elementary, middle and high school. We provide a bilingual immersion program from PreK to Kindergarten and with continued Chinese (Cantonese from PreK to 5th and Mandarin starting in 6th grade) language instruction from 1st to 12th grades.
The school is set on a 4.5 acre property at the base of Mc Claren Park, just on the outskirts of San Francisco with the Sierra Nevada mountain range lies just a few hours' drive east. This unique setting offers an opportunity for students around the world to take advantage of the extraordinary cultural, theatrical, and athletic opportunities, and to enjoy the cosmopolitan setting and unique and contrasting ecologies of Northern California.
The campus is located in the Portola Heights, Excelsior District of San Francisco. It is centrally located between Highway's 280 & 101 interchange, so it easy access from either freeways.

Live Oak School is an independent, co-educational day school for students in kindergarten through to 8th grade located in Potrero Hill on the east side of San Francisco. Founded by parents and teachers in 1971, Live Oak draws families from Portrero, Central East, Mission District and other communities throughout the Peninsula. Live Oak is a small school where students and families know each other well. We believe that school is both a place to learn and a place to learn how to learn.
We want our students to know themselves and to know how to work with others. We want our students to leave Live Oak with the doors wide open. Our faculty, staff, board and families work together to create a learning environment that is diverse, challenging, nurturing, engaging and inspiring. We believe that the journey is as important as the destination, and at the same time, we are proud that our graduates choose among public, independent and religious high schools.

Ecole Claire Fontaine, located in Venice, Los Angeles, California, is a bi-lingual preschool offering programs in French & English to children ages 2 to 6. Claire Fontaine provides a secure and loving place for children to learn and play. We believe that a child`s intelligence and reasoning are exercised through playful creativity. Play is a natural medium for children to express pleasure, curiosity, autonomy, and is integrated into our curriculum as a primary way of learning. Every day, the children also practice and experience making art, music, writing, storytelling - enriching their emotional life.
Kids Into Speaking Spanish (KISS) is a total Spanish immersion program for preschool and kindergarten age children (from 2 to 6 years), with two locations in the East Bay region of San Francisco Bay Area: Walnut Creek (East of Oakland in Contra Costa County) and Montclair, Oakland, CA. The schools are a safe and exciting place for children to grow and learn.
Our success over the last seven years is a testament to our innovative program. We provide a wonderful program designed to prepare your child for academic success. About 95% of the activities are conducted in Spanish. The core of our curriculum consists of activities and participation in cultural experiences such as singing, dancing, art projects, cooking, and games - all done entirely in Spanish.
All of the instructors we hire are native speakers because the KISS program emphasizes proper pronunciation and exposure to various aspects of Latin culture. We believe that creating an environment where children have fun, while being exposed to the Spanish language paves the way for greater receptivity to learning the language in a more structured setting later.
