Visiting the School

We warmly invite you to visit SFWS during our tour season which runs from October to early December. Our weekly, adults-only, Tuesday morning parent tours* are an excellent way of experiencing, first-hand, our engaged and happy students and committed, experienced, teachers.

Faculty, staff, and parents will be available during the tour to answer any of your questions.

Additionally, our Saturday morning open houses are open to all with childcare available by advanced reservation for children 3 to 10 years old. You will enjoy interactive (the real kind!) sample classes, classroom visits, refreshments, and a chance to meet and ask questions of our faculty, staff, and current and alumni students.

Attendance at either the tour or open house satisfies the tour requirement for admissions. However, many parents find that attending both events is time well spent!

Our tours and open houses will resume in October 2015 for 2016-2017 admissions. Private tours for rolling admissions in select classes may be available. Please contact the Admissions Office at, for more information.

*tours are reserved for parents/guardians of children who will be eligible for our nursery, kndergarten, and grade school the following school year.
