  • School Code

  • Mission Education Center is a PreK-5 elementary school for newly arrived Spanish-speaking immigrant students. This transitional program helps the newcomer students achieve the necessary skills and confidence to succeed in regular schools to which they will transfer at the end of one year. Our teachers are Spanish bilingual and credentialed to work with our newcomer population. Our main focus is oral English proficiency, academic success in Spanish and English, and orientation to life in a new community. At Mission, all students have opportunities to engage in a high quality arts program that includes visual arts, performing arts, music and dance. All students have a high quality physical education program taught by specialists. All students have the opportunity to participate in the ExCEL afterschool program.

    Mission Education Center students participate, have ownership and take responsibility in their own learning. We honor and promote our students' culture, background, and experiences. We welcome all newcomer families and provide support, education, resources, outreach, and workshops. We encourage parents to become engaged in and supportive of their child's education, through bi-weekly parent education workshops. We work collaboratively with community agencies such as SF School Volunteers, Mission Science Workshop, Performing Arts Workshop, SF Ballet, and Lion's Club.
