Starr King is the most ethnically and socio-economically diverse public school in San Francisco. Our students, teachers, and families embrace the myriad perspectives, opportunities, and challenges of our kaleidoscopic community.

Our site is home to four programs—Special Education, Pre-Kindergarten, General Education, and Mandarin Immersion—with very distinct needs, but common goals.

Love to learn.  Learn together.


As both a neighborhood school and a magnet, Starr King embraces diversity and empowers every student to claim their education.

Our school culture is based on personal responsibility and mutual respect. We value coming to school on time, participating with courage and perseverance, and learning together.

We celebrate each other through Dia de los Muertos, Black History Month, Chinese New Year, Holi, Pacific Islander Heritage Day, and the day-to-day, year-to-year relationships we make and grow.

Starr King is a microcosm of the world. The work we do with our kids here is work we do in service of human beings who will shape our future.

Greening Work Day: Saturday, 4/22, 10AM. Please come lend a hand tidying up the yard as part of our series of micro work days to finish out the year.  We’ll be doing a big clean-up of the Carolina Street side, trash pick-up around the yard and some weeding.  Bring gloves if you have them.  Kids welcome, snacks provided!

Welcome 2017-2018 Kinder Families!!! Please take a look here for your welcome packet and more info about the school. We've also added an extra school tour in April for families who have yet to visit the school. Welcome!
