    SF Day is a remarkable place. Its community curriculum facilities and faculty are all terrific. It is a pleasure to send our kids there each morning and to hear of their day each evening. They are thriving and we could not be happier.

    This school is great! I have four kids-- 18 years with this school. For the 18 years that SFDS has been a part of our lives it has been amazing! I love SFDS.

    The best elementary school in SF for kids of all learning styles including learning difficulties (although not severe ones). Extremely insightful teachers and a philosophy toward developing all aspects of a child (not just traditional educational principles).

    Great IF your child is a 'head of the class' and/or 'popular' type of kid. NOT for kids with learning differences. Some very wealthy families & many of the rest are craving 'wanna-be's.' Lots of snotty kids NOT kept in check. Many good teachers but some notably below par.

    Amazing experience here. Experienced teachers - rigorous but also nurturing. Great arts and music program nice facility but feels crowded at times. Down to earth parent body for an urban private school. New head about to start.
