We are building a community of students in which
we value integrity, nurture creativity, place respect for each
other as a priority, foster the curiosity of intellectual abilities,
promote responsibility and leadership, appreciate cultural
differences and feel safe to be who we are on the inside.
Our challenge is to maintain a sense of family at all times while
we allow for building capacity in our students, in each other
and in our programs.

We have 800 students taking Math, English, Science, Social
Studies, PE, Advisory and one of the following options: band,
orchestra, art, drama, set design, animation, engineering,
computer science, journalism, AVID, Mandarin, Cantonese, or
Spanish. In addition, we are partnered with the YMCA after-
school program and a number of other community based
organizations who provide opportunities for our students that
range from hiking, camping and sailing, music and dance events
to clubs that meet at lunch.

We are passionate about supporting the individual educational
journeys of all of our students as we look toward the future,
guided by the comprehensive strategic plan of the San
Francisco Unified School District’s (SFUSD) Vision 2025. We
want every child to be part of the magic of learning at Marina
Middle School.
