Welcome to a PS/K-8 school in San Francisco that has been helping its students to design and engineer for decades, long before the first computer came to campus. Art, music, and the humanities are mainstays at The San Francisco School, which views tools like xylophones and kilns as age-appropriate pathways for teaching algorithms and fabrication to even the youngest of children. All the while, The San Francisco School has rooted itself in diversity, equity, and inclusion—not just for the sake of maintaining some of the most impressive statistics in independent school education, but because this is a community that truly wants all voices in active dialogue both in the classroom and at the decision table.

Now, following the successful journeys of a new strategic plan and a recent six-month STEAM Think Tank, The San Francisco School has created a new senior leadership position to help the school be even more intentional in the various areas of STEAM education. Reporting directly to the head of school, who is in his fifteenth year of service to the school—the last eleven of which as head—the director of design, engineering, and technology will lead the implementation of a new STEAM strategic plan at a school known for its progressive education, experiential learning principles, and challenging academic program. The director will have the opportunity to deliver instruction to students, and will be charged primarily with guiding and leading members of the faculty on innovation journeys to reimagine existing curriculum and explore new pedagogical methods for teaching and learning. The San Francisco School will enthusiastically welcome its inaugural director of design, engineering, and technology on July 1, 2019.
