Sterne 40th Anniversary
Putting Students First,
Then and Now.
Forty years ago, Val Anthony had a vision for a new kind of school. A school that would teach each student how to be successful, regardless of learning preferences. In the fall of 1976, seven students took their seats in a makeshift classroom above a storefront in the Inner Sunset District of San Francisco. It was this class of seven, and four teachers, that launched Sterne School into the educational landscape.
Now, forty-years since Sterne's inception, with 150+ students and 40 faculty/staff members across two beautiful campuses, we give thanks to our community for their belief in, support of, and unwavering commitment to the educational haven we call Sterne School.
