Sterne School is a co-ed, independent day school serving grades 4-12 in San Francisco.

At Sterne, we know that in a world where everyone’s learning profile is unique, there cannot be a one size fits all educational approach. Every day, we teach students how to unlock the learning style that works best for them. We believe that when support is a part of, not an exception to the school day, kids can focus on being kids while also becoming confident, capable learners.



Start your journey at Sterne, a school where support is a part of, not an exception to, an excellent education.
