In this ongoing gentrifying city of San Francisco, we are a fearless little school that meets the educational, cultural, and social needs for Black children. We have been in existence since 1979 and 95% of our graduates have attended and graduated from four –year universities including Morehouse, Emerson, Occidental, Columbia, Smith, Yale and many of the UC’s and California State universities.
We are committed to stopping the out migration of San Francisco’s Black families by providing academic scholarships in order to lessen their financial burden.
We draw upon an Afro-centric philosophy and specialize in educating all children of color to reach their full potential. We challenge children academically but also cultivate their self-respect and cultural awareness.
We are a school that encourages the individual expression of spirit and challenges the concept of conformity. We teach children how to discover themselves rather than dictate what they are supposed to believe or agree with. We believe that critical thinking means to question all that you see and hear.
We encourage respect, pride, and social responsibility among students. The school empowers children and nurtures the coming generation of leaders for social change in San Francisco.
