A lot goes into making Alvarado one of the best schools in San Francisco. A wonderful team of teachers and staff are dedicated to inspiring a love for learning in our children that will last a lifetime. Their dedication is enhanced and enriched by the participation and generosity of our community.

The funds we raise provide for key programs not fully funded by San Francisco Unified School District, including:

  • Math & Science – Strengthening the curriculum, school-day math tutoring, and a full time science teacher
  • Art & Music – Inspiring student creativity with Studio art with full time art teacher and Orff music curriculum
  • Literacy – Two Literacy Specialists to facilitate sharing, collaboration, professional development, and new teaching strategies for staff, as well as conducting workshops for parents and intensive instruction to students who require additional support. 
  • Technology – Ensuring that teachers and students have up-to-date tools, plus year-long instruction in the Computer Lab
  • Teacher Support – Professional development, classroom supplies, and field trips
  • Community Support – Mental health experts, healthy kid initiatives, and community events
