SFDS has been a fantastic experience for our child. The teaching, individual development, resources, mix in subjects (including a fantastic art and math/science program), and size of classes and ratio to teachers has been exactly what our son needed! There is both academic challenge and early academic support (for reading and writing) and kids feel a real sense of community here. Parents are warm and laid back (although there is a bit of a culture of affluence here, not showy, but it is a bit of a bubble). Lots of visible diversity in the lower years which we were looking for.

SF Day is a remarkable place. Its community, curriculum, facilities and faculty are all terrific. It is a pleasure to send our kids there each morning and to hear of their day each evening. They are thriving and we could not be happier.

The San Francisco day school is an amazing school, the kids are extremely kind, very mature, and this is a great school especially for kids with learning differences, the day school provides great help for those with learning differences. We love the Day School!!!!!!!

The best elementary school in SF for kids of all learning styles, including learning difficulties (although not severe ones). Extremely insightful teachers and a philosophy toward developing all aspects of a child (not just traditional educational principles).

Great, IF your child is a 'head of the class' and/or 'popular' type of kid. NOT for kids with learning differences. Some very wealthy families & many of the rest are craving 'wanna-be's.' Lots of snotty kids, NOT kept in check. Many good teachers but some notably below par.

Amazing experience here. Experienced teachers - rigorous but also nurturing. Great arts and music program, nice facility but feels crowded at times. Down to earth parent body for an urban private school. New head about to start.
