The Mission Preparatory School, a K-8, college-preparatory, tuition-free, public charter school in San Francisco’s Excelsior neighborhood, is accepting applications for Kindergarten – 6th grade classroom teachers and Art, PE, and Spanish teachers for the 2017-18 school year.


Our Mission

The Mission Preparatory School equips K-8 students with the knowledge, skills, and strength of character needed to succeed in college and serve as leaders in their communities.  Our commitment to college preparation is supported by a “whatever-it-takes” approach that maintains the highest expectations and accountability across the board, from leadership, to teachers, to students.


Our Background

Mission Prep was founded by a diverse group of Bay Area leaders from a variety of sectors who share a commitment to expanding educational opportunity, particularly for children growing up in low-income communities who lack access to high-performing schools.  Awarded a charter by the California State Board of Education in September 2010, Mission Prep opened with 50 Kindergarten students in August 2011, earned charter renewal from SFUSD in 2015, and continues to grow by one grade per year through 8th grade. 


Our School

The Mission Preparatory School’s design is based on the core characteristics common to the highest-performing urban charter schools in the country.  We integrate academic rigor, structured school and classroom environments, social-emotional learning principles, and individualized support to ensure college preparation and leadership development for all students.  Mission Prep operates with an extended school day (7:40-4:00), extended school year (190 days), and extensive professional development support for teachers, including 28 full days throughout the year and 2 hours every Wednesday afternoon. 


Our Results

On the California Smarter Balanced Assessments, Mission Prep students exceeded state and district averages in ELA and Math, making us the top-performing school for Latino students in San Francisco and earning a 10 (out of 10) Similar Schools rating.  We are committed to continuing to improve our instructional program and educational practice in order to ensure Mission Prep students achieve ambitious academic goals and complete 8th grade prepared to access and succeed in college-preparatory high schools and higher education.


Our Team

The Mission Preparatory School is conducting a nation-wide search for educators who share our commitment to high expectations for every child and who will do all that it takes to put each Mission Prep student on the path to college.  Our team works hard, works together, and takes ownership for the overall success of our students and school.
