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 schoolyard for recess where we often hold community events.

Thanks to a generous donation from J.F. Shea Co., our entire campus was renovated during the summer of 2016. The renovations included new bathrooms, a renovated front office, state of the art projection systems in each classroom, interior and exterior painting, hallway soundproofing, and seismic upgrades to the gym building.
