Discover This School

Francisco Middle School, located in the heart of the Chinatown-North Beach community, has a rich tradition of delivering a strong academic curriculum to our diverse student population. We involve our students in meaningful school experiences that promote the joy of learning while addressing students' individual needs. Our school believes that all students should have access to an appropriate and quality education that prepares them to be high functioning members of the community. We believe that personal relationships between staff and students, and student to student are essential to student achievement. Students tell us they are the most engaged when they feel a connection with their teachers and can work with their peers. We believe that achievement is not an end result, but a process of continuous improvement, and that struggle, mistakes, and effort are necessary for growth. We offer a network-ready computer lab, library media center, and computers in every classroom.

Chinese Education Center, Chin ES, Garfield ES, Parker ES, Tenderloin ES, Yick Wo ES
