Mission Bay School - Project Information

San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) is developing a new Mission Bay School, located in the burgeoning Mission Bay neighborhood. Concurrent with an existing legal agreement between the San Francisco Office of Community Investment and Infrastructure and the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) to designate Mission Bay Parcel 14 as a new school site, the SFUSD Board of Education tasked the Superintendent to develop the project using a robust process involving school and community stakeholders. Mission Bay School is being delivered by the 2016 Proposition A Bond program.

The school program, as defined by the District, consists of: 

  • A TK - 5 Elementary School, plus a pre-kinder program with access to high-quality teaching and learning. 
  • A Linked Learning Hub for high school students where they are offered unique opportunities to connect their learning with career experiences and workforce readiness.
  • A Professional Learning resource for teachers and staff to receive training in support of ever-changing methods of teaching and ways to engage students. 

Project Schedule

School Programming

The development of specific programming concepts for Mission Bay School began several years ago through SFUSD’s leadership teams for Instruction, Policy and Operations, School Portfolio Planning, and Special Projects. This journey has engaged a broad and diverse range of District stakeholders, teachers, staff, students, families and community members. 

These concepts have guided project development through design, creating a solution that is specific to the needs of Mission Bay School, while providing a path for this project to be a beacon for the District.
