Presidio Middle School
Presidio Middle School, founded in 1930, is located in the Richmond district in close proximity to Golden Gate Park and the Pacific Ocean. We are committed to delivering a rigorous standards based education of the highest quality to all students and have been successful in meeting this challenge with a multicultural population of diverse socioeconomic backgrounds. The administration and staff work together to provide a safe and nurturing environment, and establish policies and procedures in which both the students and teachers can perform to their maximum capabilities.

This unique, privately funded schoolyard is the product of a collaborative design process.
