Discover This School

Redding Elementary School serves a culturally, linguistically, and ethnically diverse group of students who come from all over San Francisco. To the Redding School community, social justice and equity mean providing the highest quality education possible to all students so that they may succeed in our society. Our staff commits to providing a nurturing and safe learning environment in which all students are expected to achieve their maximum potential in all curricular disciplines. We offer a thematic, interdisciplinary program that aligns with State and District Standards and integrates arts education. Teachers work in collaboration with parents to ensure that students do their best work to experience success in their endeavors. Beginning in the 2019-2020 school year, Redding will be offering an Arabic language program to all students.

At Redding, we believe that joyful learning means teachers providing stimulating and varied experiences for all students, regardless of performance level. We celebrate the achievement of all of our students, and diligently monitor student attendance through our Student Attendance Review Team. We maintain ongoing communication with families (through interpreters as necessary.) Staff value knowing every student's current achievement level and suggest strategies and/or interventions to advance each student to the next level. We expect our students to be successful in their educational journey here so that they can be responsible, respectful citizens who positively contribute to our society. We are a community of life-long, joyful learners!
