Our 2nd year at SFSH, and we could not be more pleased. The school offers personal instruction to fit the needs of each child. This sounded appealing but seeing it happen was something special. Our child explores and is celebrated for it. The children love to go to school, and they love to learn. A great community.

Based on the vision of its founder and director, this school has made the utopian dream we had for our child's education a reality. The teachers are superlative, the children are thrilled to be there and in love with learning, and the parents are fully engaged and 100% committed to supporting this unique educational experience for everyone involved. We could not have asked for anything more.

We were lucky enough to be one of the 1st families at SF Schoolhouse, Our daughter is in 2nd grade this year, and began at the mid point of her kinder year. The teachers are excellent, and its an incredible parent community. The progressive learning approach as well as the High TEACHER to student ratio has been the cherry on top. This has been such an awesome opportunity to be a part of- our child is thriving & we didn't even need a 2nd mortgage to pay tuition.. GREAT SCHOOL.

I cannot say enough about this school. My son is on his 2nd year and he is always so happy to go to school and enjoys all of his class mates. The teachers are incredible and words cannot describe the education he is receiving. And the parent community is one of the best!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
