Our campus is located on 3371 16th Street, right next to the historic Mission Dolores Basilica. We have a main building and a separate annex with a gym, art room, and a self contained Kindergarten classroom. Our main building contains 1 classroom per grade, each fully equipped with computer stations to facilitate our cutting edge blended learning model. We have a spacious school yard for recess where we often hold community events.

The entire campus will be renovated during the summer of 2016 thanks to a generous donation from J.F. Shea Co. The improvements will include new bathrooms, electrical and lighting systems, classroom projection systems, exterior and interior painting, and  seismic upgrades to the gym.
