We are here to help you understand middle school enrollment!
Parents for Public Schools of San Francisco provides information on navigating the enrollment process and finding a school that is the right fit for your family. See our Start Your Search article to get started in finding a school. Please visit the SFUSD site for a list of key dates and exact deadlines. Need more information? Please come to one of our free workshops.
You have the option of applying for any school in San Francisco. You will have a preference for your feeder middle school if you choose to go there.
Important Change: The new middle school feeder pattern assignment policy, adopted by the Board of Education on June 14, 2011, has been put on hold for students who begin middle school in fall 2017. Current SFUSD 5th grade families must still fill out a form and turn it in to your school or to the Educational Placement Center. You will NOT be automatically placed at your feeder school.
