  • Sutro Elementary provides a strong academic program within a family-oriented atmosphere for our diverse student population. We commit ourselves to ensuring that all students, regardless of their ethnicity, socio-economic status, gender, or ability level, will enjoy an equal opportunity to succeed in school. At Sutro, we believe that a safe, secure school environment, collaboration, and cooperation all enhance the learning experience for each of our students. After-school opportunities include homework supported by after-school programs, piano, Mandarin and coding classes.

    We promise our students an optimal learning environment that includes leadership opportunities, healthy community practices and a better understanding of the world around them. We have enthusiastic parents and family support. Using shared decision-making, our entire school community unites to provide an educational program committed to excellence emphasizing language arts, visual and performing arts, math, science, and technology. At our school, each and every student receives individual attention from a community of caring adults. We address not only academic, but also social and emotional needs. All community members—students, staff, parents, and volunteers—become part of a nurturing Sutro School family.
