Photo of Private School in San Francisco Bay AreaAs part of our committment to raising internationally-minded students, San Francisco International School:

* Provides an international perspective in our course content.

* Promotes international and intercultural understanding.
* Provides activities which bring students into contact with other cultures, including through the use of technology.
* Celebrates both diversity and similiarity.
* Creates a context for world peace by provision of opportunities for many cultures to live together in mutual understanding and respect.

As we all know, the world is becoming increasingly interdependent. We believe that it is our responsibility to impart on children the ability to be global citizens, people who understand, appreciate and can communicate easily with the world around them. At San Francisco International School, we offer numerous opportunities for students to recognize their unique and connected place in the world.

The International School Association (ISA) has established the following criteria for "internationally-minded" schools: "The school should provide an education directed to the strengthening of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms and should promote understanding, tolerance and friendship among people of all nations."

Diversity:

As a school, we strive to be a microcosm of the larger society, reflecting the diversity in the San Francisco community. In addition to actively seeking families of various ethnic, religious, cultural, and sexual orientations, we stress anti-bias and culturally diverse curriculum in our daily program.

Image of Private School in San Francisco Bay Area We honor the uniqueness of each individual and embrace diverse backgrounds, values, and points of view to build a strong, inclusive community and to prepare students for lives in a multicultural society.

As a school that gradutes internationally-minded students, diversity alone is not enough. While the work of diversity and community have always been a part of the mission of the School, we seek to build on this commitment, and by so doing, create a truly inclusive institution — one where students and adults are welcomed and supported, and where their faces, voices, and experiences are reflected and valued. We believe that the work of inclusion is a responsibility held by all and done for all, person to person.

Service Learning:

Service learning is way to teach and learn that combines community service and academic learning. Service learning focuses on critical thinking, reflective thinking, civic responsibility, commitment to the community, personal growth, and an understanding of larger social thinking.

San Francisco International School students participate in regular service learning opportunities. When participating in a native plant restoration project, the students learn about the plants, their history, why they need our help, etc. This is all in addition to actually helping to restore the plants.

When raising funds for UNICEF, the students learn about where the funds go, why the cost of materials is less expensive in the affected countries (hence why ever penny counts) and participate in writing letters and/or drawing pictures to partner schools abroad.

Field Trips:

San Francisco is full of amazing cultural and educational field trip locations. From the SFMOMA to touring the murals in the Mission District, our students have the opportunity to participate in monthly field trips. We often invite parents to join us on these great outings. Specific field trip locations and dates will be provided to each family at Back To School Night.

Our method of instructions awakens a natural desire of learning in each of the students and simultaneously equipping them with a sound foundation of academic skills and knowledge.

These fields of study are enhanced by classes in music, computer, Spanish, physical education, and art.
