Alamo and our Mission

About A-L-A-M-O!

Alamo Elementary School, founded in 1926, is a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence
located in the Richmond District in San Francisco. The school serves over 400 students
from Kindergarten to Fifth Grade. Alamo’s goal is to provide a rich, rewarding education
for our students delivered by experienced teachers, staff and community volunteers.

As you tour our school, you will see beautiful and enriching artwork and writing from our talented
students. This artwork reflects our school’s motto -  “Be A Friend.”
