Parents for Public Schools of San Francisco. Keeping the public in education.

Since 1999, Parents for Public Schools – San Francisco has been assisting families and working to ensure quality public schools for all children in our city. We help parents at each stage of the journey, from introducing them to the enrollment lottery process, to developing parent leaders in the schools and at the district, to improving systems at SFUSD and much more.

We provide essential support to all families in every community across our city, and we work to ensure that the full range of parent voices is part of policy-making at the District and Board of Education. Read more >


What's Happening

Why We Love San Francisco Public Schools


PPS-SF is proud to share this short film that features parents, children, and teachers from Argonne, Bret Harte, Everett, Garfield, Gateway, J. Serra, and McKinley. Thank you to Mission Pictures for this beautiful reminder of why we love San Francisco public schools.


Growing our impact


2015 has started with a splash! PPS-SF continues to pick up its momentum with a variety of program offerings. We count on supporters like you to ensure we have the resources to keep our workshops at no cost to families.

Tips from Parents

Jose Ortega shares success tips for their Annual Walk-a-thon

“The distance from San Francisco to San Diego is 502 miles. Last year, our kids walked enough to get there and beyond! Their combined little feet walked/ran a total of 721 miles – which would take them all the way to Mexico – and earned quite a bit of revenue for our school, as well!”

Read more great ideas and tips happening at other schools.

If your school has a tip to share with other public school parents, let us know and we will feature on our website.
