  • School Code

  • Located in the Excelsior District of San Francisco, Cleveland is walking distance from Crocker Amazon and McLaren Parks. The Cleveland school community is committed to providing fair access to language, curriculum, and resources for success. We offer a Spanish Bilingual Program and one SDCLD class. Creative and dedicated teachers collaborate in order to deliver differentiated instruction in all the core content areas. Staff, parent, and community volunteers support both our students' academic and social growth.

    Our goal is that all students are learning—not just the curriculum, but learning how to be citizens, learning how to make positive contributions to society, learning how to solve problems, and learning how to be respectful of themselves and one another. They should be growing, intellectually and socially, on a daily basis, pushing the limits, and learning the big ideas. Parents, teachers, staff and students should be involved in the process of decision making at Cleveland, planning events that will create a family environment. Celebrations such as Latino Heritage, Black Pride, our winter music festival, spring carnival, end-of-the-year Field Day, and the beginning of the year Picnic bring parents and families together with opportunities to network and collaborate.
