In order to see our teachers and students in action, you can sign up for a School Tour. Led by current SFDS 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. 

To make a reservation for a School Tour, please fill out our online Inquiry Form.  If the tour date you wish to attend is fully booked, please add your name to this waitlist and our office will contact you if spaces open up.
