The SF K Files was started by a San Francisco mom who was seeking a kindergarten for her four-year-old daughter. The site is now managed by a group of San Francisco parents who wanted to see the site continue as a resource for families seeking public, private or charter school options in San Francisco.
The site offers up reviews of public, private and charter schools, as well as lots of advice and opinions from the community. We hope that helping other parents navigate the SFUSD student assignment system and/or the parochial and independent schools’ application process will lead to fewer stressed-out families and better educational outcomes for all students in San Francisco.
We know that embarking on a school search in San Francisco is more than a search for a school – It is a search for a community and an “idea” that you had for your child, shaped by your own personal experiences.
This is a place to sort out those feelings, interact with families in the same position and find inspiration, comfort and support in the process.
