Updated list of new private schools in San Francisco
The number of students in independent (as opposed to parochial or religious schools) in San Francisco has increased by 2,400 in the past decade, according to the California State Department of Education.
That number is expected to increase still further as the 11 new private schools (and one charter) which have opened in the City since 2010 build out their classes.
I believe SFUSD should be working to find out why these families have not chosen public schools, or why they leave at middle school, and aim to reverse what is a disturbing trend.
