Overview
  • About George Peabody Elementary School

    George Peabody is a successful, safe, and small elementary school with a family-feel located in San Francisco's Inner Richmond neighborhood. Our talented and experienced staff provides each student with meaningful learning experiences through purposeful instruction and a well articulated curriculum. We work to ensure that all students learn the skills and knowledge needed to build the foundation to lead successful lives and become productive citizens. We also strive to ensure that every student leaves George Peabody with a positive elementary school experience full of fond memories, close friendships, a love of learning, and a curiosity of the world beyond San Francisco.

    We provide many unique learning opportunities to educate the whole child. These include our social emotional learning curriculum Kimochis, PeabodyOutside (based on Education Outside program), PeabodyWorks (a physical and character education program inspired by our partnership with Playworks) and a well articulated arts curriculum. Additionally, our students can participate in a variety of afterschool programs run by our PTA.  

    Our community is made stronger through monthly community building events organized by our PTA and spirit days planned by the Student Council.
