  • School Code

  • Claire Lilienthal is a California Distinguished school with a mission to inspire each student to achieve their maximum potential in an academically, culturally, and socially inclusive environment. Lilienthal was founded on the ideals of equity, academic excellence, and parent partnership. These ideals continue to undergird the work we do today.

    Currently, our community is focused on expanding Readers and Writers Workshop, piloting Project-Based Learning, and deepening our commitment to Social-Emotional Learning for all students. Enriching learning experiences can be found throughout the school as well. We have a wonderful garden program at both campuses run through Education Outside. Our students also take Outdoor Education trips each year ranging from a day in the Presidio to a week in Catalina Island. We also have a long history of arts integration and work with SFArtsEd to provide rigorous arts programming for the entire school.

    In addition to our strong general education programming, we have a Korean dual language immersion program that teaches language and cultural to our students. We’re very proud of this program as it’s the only Korean Immersion Program in all of Northern California.

    We also employ inclusive practices with our special needs students, and have early intervention supports for struggling readers.

    Thank you for your interest in Claire Lilienthal, we look forward to meeting you and partnering with you on the education of your child!
