Moscone ES About

George R. Moscone Elementary School

Located in the historic Mission District, George R. Moscone Elementary has a multi-ethnic student body, rich in cultural and linguistic diversity.  We have approximately 370 students in grades K-5. We service our diverse student body with programs in Chinese, Spanish and English Language Development.  We focus on a rigorous academic program emphasizing language arts, math, science, social studies, balanced with performing and visual arts.

Academic Programs

Biliteracy Pathway K – 5th grade

Spanish Bilingual & Cantonese Bilingual

In the Biliteracy Pathway, students develop proficiency, literacy and academic competency in both English and the student’s primary language. As of August 2015, our programs now provide instruction in Spanish and Chinese kindergarten through 5th grade. 

English Language Development K – 5th grade

Intensive English Program

Provides English Language Learners with the opportunity to acquire English and to access the core curriculum.  All instruction is provided in English.

Enrichment and Intervention Programs

All students at Moscone participate in Movement & Dance Classes throughout the year, culminating in a dance performance at the end of the school year.

We staff one visual art teacher, and a physical education teacher; both work with all students throughout the year.  

An instrumental Music Program is available in 4th and 5th grades.

All students work in the computer lab weekly, and have access to technology in their classrooms.

Our part-time librarian reads with classes weekly, and weaves on-line literacy into her instruction.

A Reading Recovery teacher supports struggling readers in the lower grades. Our Upper Grade Literacy Support teacher works to ensure that 3rd - 5th grade students continue to progress with academic language and accessing grade level content.

All classes enjoy learning outside of the classroom on field trips.

From classroom volunteering, to school government or fundraising, parents have many opportunities to be involved at Moscone. Parents are welcome to visit the school on Wednesday mornings at 8:15 a.m.
