Dear Parents and Students,
Star of the Sea School has been educating students in San Francisco for 110 years. As we have grown and changed through the years, our focus has not. Jesus has been and will continue to be the focus of all that we do. The mission of Star of the Sea School is to inspire all students to become devoted to Christ through an engaging, nurturing, and exemplary classical curriculum. Our students participate in weekly Mass, daily prayer, Eucharistic adoration, a sacred music program, and daily religion classes, all to deepen their relationship with Jesus and follow his teachings.
Our academic programming is rigorous, allowing each student to develop to his or her full potential. Our curriculum standards prepare the students for success in our ever-changing world. We have a state of the art Science Lab, where students engage in collaborative, hands-on, inquiry-based learning. Technology, our iPads in the computer lab and Chromebook mobile labs in the classrooms, is integrated into daily lessons. Star of the Sea students are well prepared for high school and beyond when they graduate 8th grade.
In fact, high school acceptance notifications went out last Friday and this year three of our students were accepted into Mercy High School in San Francisco and four were accepted at both Riordan High School and Lowell. 12 of our students were accepted at Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory and 11 were accepted at St. Ignatius. Congratulations to all of our 8th graders and their families. It is a continuing source of pride for both our parish and our school to see so many of our students matriculate to the finest high schools in San Francisco.
And finally, thank you to our highly qualified and dedicated faculty who work tirelessly to ensure that the needs of each of our students are met. Our teachers get to know all of our students and help them grow spiritually and academically.
Take care and God bless,
Mr. David Gallagher
