HyFlex Teaching & Learning
Consistency. Empathy. Creativity. Inspiration.
At San Domenico, our mission includes a commitment to recognize what it means to be human in a global community and respond with integrity to the needs of the times. In today's world, it may feel like the global norm is uncertainty. At SD however, we carry on a 170 year tradition of providing not only excellence in education but also, a sense of purpose.
Whether in on-campus or HyFlex model, SD's robust and exceptional program includes full days of learning with both synchronous and asynchronous learning, and appropriate academic challenge as well as social emotional support, extracurriculars, athletics, and community building. Even online - via Google Hangouts, Zoom, personal check ins with teachers, portfolio project sharing, and video streaming - students experience joyful and meaningful learning.
Students enjoyed a Zoom visit with the author of Under the Mesquite building on a unit on poetic devices.
This year, our talented VP students played live solo works on violin, viola, and cello, which were live streamed from the Carol Franc Buck Hall of the Arts.

What Parents and Students are Saying About the HyFlex Model
"A quick note to say 'thank you' for the clear communications and advance prep leading up to the roll out of distance learning. As a parent and a trustee I am so grateful and so impressed. I can tell you, based on my own experience with another child in high school in San Francisco as well as stories from friends at other local independent schools — this positive experience is not universal! You should be very proud of your efforts and the results. Thank you!”- K.F., MOM OF THREE
