Discover This School

George R. Moscone, located in the historic Mission District, has a multiethnic student body rich in cultural and linguistic diversity. An energetic, hard-working staff collaborates to create an atmosphere that nurtures academic, social, and emotional growth. We are committed to having all students perform at their highest ability to reach their full potential. Students will develop their self-esteem and a respect for individual differences through their own sense of personal and social responsibility.

Our faculty is committed to engaging students in all their senses and teaching to all types of learning modalities. Every day children have opportunities in every class for hands-on and differing modalities of instruction, through music, movement, and project based learning. One unique strategy to teach content is performing and producing plays in English and Spanish. Teachers communicate frequently with each other to share ideas and provide the best opportunities for the students. We believe in strong communication with families regarding student development. Translation is an integral part of information and dialogue with families as all weekly newsletters are sent home in three languages: English, Chinese, and Spanish.

This school feeds into:

Herbert Hoover Middle School
