Please submit an entry on the Tour Form (same form as above) and we will be in touch on a schedules if and when we can publish them.

We do not offer private tours or Zoom bombs as to minimize the amount of disruption to our students and staff. For more information please e-mail Please do not call the school, as tour reservations and inquiries are handled online, solely through our PTA.


Enrollment at all San Francisco public schools, including Alvarado, is handled by San Francisco Unified School District’s Educational Placement Center (EPC). You can read about school placement here. Please note that admission to Alvarado’s General Education and Spanish Immersion programs are handled separately by the EPC.



The non-profit group Parents for Public Schools is a network of public school parents (not funded by the school district), which hosts enrollment workshops throughout the city. The organization is a great resource for navigating the enrollment process.

To see the breakdown of past applicants to Alvarado (sibling, CTIP, neighborhood, etc.), please visit SFUSD’S Student Assignment and Enrollment Reports.
