Philosophy and Core Instruction:
At Saint Brigid School we provide a program that encompasses the spiritual, intellectual, social, psychological, and physical levels of development. The curriculum complies with California State Board of Education Content Standards.  Saint Brigid School provides highly individualized learning experiences which include a multi-sensory approach. In grades 3 to 8, all core subjects are departmentalized and led by subject area faculty members.  All grade levels have homeroom classes in which Teach for Transformation and Second Step social-emotional programs are taught and practiced.  

We offer all-core subjects: Mathematics, Science, English Language Arts (ELA), and Social Studies. Our faculty and staff integrate Science Technology Engineering Art Math (STEAM) in all core subjects to provide project-based and real-world learning experiences. Students also study religion, language, music, and physical education. Our students learn to think critically, do short and long-term research, and are prepared for competitive opportunities to further their educations and careers. 

Saint Brigid offers a multi-sensory approach to teaching literacy (Orton-Gillingham, Wilson Reading Systems).  This unique way of learning supports students who may have dyslexia, comprehension challenges, and other reading differences. This approach also benefits students who struggle with attention and focus. 

The structure of our program is based on a three-tiered model. We support neurotypical and neurodivergent students (below grade level and gifted and talented alike) through our unique, individualized, and small-group classes. 

Our students advance to college-prep high schools in San Francisco, including Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory, Saint Ignatius College Preparatory, Convent and Stuart Hall, Archbishop Riordan, University, Lick Wilmerding, and Lowell High Schools.
