Prospective Families

Clarendon middle yard featuring our new building

Thank you for your interest in Clarendon Elementary School

Clarendon’s school site is home to two distinct programs:

  • General Education Program (Second Community)
  • Japanese Bilingual Bicultural Program (JBBP)

Admission to each program is handled separately by the SFUSD EPC, meaning that when you apply to Clarendon, you apply to the Second Community or the JBBP program individually.

If you would like to find out more about the program from our parent association or to be matched with a current “buddy family” for a video chat, please email us:

Welcome Events

We are hosting a Welcome Playdate for families with children starting school at Clarendon in Fall 2022. Come meet other families and parent leadership at Midtown Terrace Playground on Sunday, April 24th from 10am-12:30pm. We will schedule an additional playdate in August before school starts (date TBD).

Clarendon Tours

A series of virtual tours were held in late 2021 and early 2022. A recording of the virtual school tour held on December 8, 2021, is available for viewing.

We hosted an outdoor “Meet and Greet” in our schoolyard on Saturday, January 29th, 2022. Participants were able to meet school administration and current parents, including parent group leadership.

You can see a video about our school on YouTube here.
