Noe Valley Rec Center today

Great turn-out today at the Noe Valley Recreation Center School Fair today!
As you may know, this event is not a public school event but a a private event featuring public, private and parochial schools in the SE neighborhoods.  Having attended both the SFUSD School Fair (coming in November) and this event, I find the NVRC a nice atmosphere and also a great way to compare publics and privates.  It's also a great place to see hard-working parents and teachers advocating for their schools, which always warms my heart.

Parents for Public Schools also had a separate tent at the NVRC, where the sessions were jam-packed with parents looking for guidance in navigating SFUSD.

I understand that public school tours kick-off after the official SFUSD school fair which is the SFUSD School Year 2012-2014 Enrollment Fair, held on Saturday, November 3 from 9:30-2:30 pm at the Concourse Exhibition Center, 620 7th Street.

So - what were your thoughts on the fair?  Did you attend and did the school fair help shape your school tour list?


  1. If you missed the fair, you can still research schools at their website.
    The map feature is a great way to see schools close to your house.

  2. Also, some public schools are already holding tours (Sherman, Miraloma and a few others).
