My twins are currently in Kindergarten at the SF School House. We are so grateful to be part of this growing school. Our children are thriving there. They learn by doing, with hands on projects that allow them to move their bodies, learn 3-dimensionally and interact with the teacher to understand concepts. The class sizes are small, around 10 to a class, which allows for more interactive learning and eliminates the need for one-size-fits all teaching. One of the original teachers at our school, who is so incredibly talented at engaging kids, described the teacher selection at our school, saying that teaching is a gift, not just an art. This school truly excels at finding teachers who possess that gift, as well as many years of practicing the art of teaching in a progressive setting to deepen that gift. That, combined with the friendly, open, tight-knit community make this an experience beyond what can be found elsewhere in the city. If you want your kids to love learning, and truly get to know their own learning style, this is the place. The school requires 10 hours of volunteer work per month, this helps tuition costs stay very low, and keeps the parents involved.
