Grow Forth!

From the curious Kindergartner eager to explore and learn, to the confident and capable fifth grader ready to lead, San Domenico supports every aspect of our students’ growth on their educational journey. Through close attention and caring relationships, our skilled faculty are committed to fostering an academic atmosphere that inspires inquiry, creativity, and above all, a strong foundation for a lifetime love of learning.

As educators, we honor that no two children learn in exactly the same way. We are as interested in how they learn as what they learn. With this in mind, teachers design classes to engage students in a multitude of ways; Kindergarteners collect and count seeds in our Garden of Hope for a math lesson while our 3rd graders might learn how to construct a written piece from the perspective of a Miwok youth during a social social studies lesson.

With our values of study, reflection, community and service always at the forefront, we are proud that our K-5 students not only grow into great students, but also well rounded individuals with a true sense purpose.
