George Peabody is a successful, safe, and small elementary school with a family-feel located in San Francisco's Inner Richmond neighborhood. Our talented and experienced staff provides each student with meaningful learning experiences through purposeful instruction and a well articulated curriculum. We work to ensure that all students learn the skills and knowledge needed to build the foundation to lead successful lives and become productive citizens. We also strive to ensure that every student leaves George Peabody with a positive elementary school experience full of fond memories, close friendships, a love of learning, and a curiosity of the world beyond San Francisco.

We eagerly take on the responsibility, as a culturally and linguistically sensitive community, to assure the academic and social success of all students. We believe in keeping the community informed of student progress, classroom learning, and that community events are critically important to the success of all our students.

We provide many unique learning opportunities to educate the whole child. These include the Junior Great Books Program, Visual Thinking Strategies Program, Sports4Kids (a physical and character education program), a new school garden, and afterschool library hours. Additionally, our students can participate in a variety of afterschool programs, such as Puppet Theatre, Destination Science, Digital Photography, Fiber Art and Crafts, Engineering FUNdamentals with Legos, Yoga, Piano, Drama, Lion Dancing, Modern Art and sports. Our community is made stronger through monthly community events and spirit days planned by the Student Council.
