Discover This School
The student body at Sanchez reflects the cultural diversity of San Francisco. Social justice is the single most important principle that will allow us to attain continuing increased student success. Social justice, to us, means high standards, high achievement and culturally-relevant instruction for all students. The overarching goal is that Sanchez students have increased access to high quality learning opportunities offered by peer interactions, parents and school staff. This will result in increased student proficiency in grade level standards associated with language arts, math and science. To us, joyful learning means that students arrive to school curious, they ask questions, and they are consistently inquisitive. It means that they are excited about school and thus engage in the learning process at home and in the community. Our teachers build a trusting and respectful relationship in classrooms. As a result, our learners are comfortable taking risks so they can learn more. We use the TRIBES program throughout the school to build positive learning communities in all classrooms, as well as Write Tools language development program, and many other instructional strategies to help students learn.
The Sanchez vision is to institute a system to support leadership development among parents, teachers, and students. Parent leadership development builds parents' capacity for student academic learning at home and at school. Students' leadership development increases their ability to help others achieve through motivation, support, and positive relationships. Teacher leadership development helps our staff build skills to support varied students' academic development. Respect is a fundamental element in all aspects of Sanchez School's work to create a safe place for learning by all stakeholders. We hold ourselves accountable for the safety and mutual respect of all members of the school community.
