In order to see our teachers and students in action, you can sign up for a School Tour. Led by current SF Day parents, small groups of prospective parents will have an opportunity to tour the school while classes are in session before participating in an informative question-and-answer session with Dr. Mike Walker, Head of School. Tours begin promptly at 8:15 am and end around 10:30 am. Reservations are required as we can only comfortably accommodate a certain number of people per tour date.
