To start the application process, please arrange to attend one of our scheduled Open Houses. (See dates below.)

You may submit an application before or after you attend an Open House, but you are required to attend an Open House before you will be considered for admission. Because visits during the school week can be disruptive, we don't offer individual tours unless there is an immediate opening available during the school year. If you are interested in an immediate opening (see list below), you can arrange a visit by emailing us at admin@lpsisf.org. Applications can be downloaded on the Application Forms page or can be obtained at an Open House.

There are currently no further Open Houses scheduled for the 2008-2009 school year. For more details, please email us admin@lpsisf.org .


As of January 2009, we have an immediate opening in the Spazio Gioco program, one opening in the Piccoli PM class (2-3 year olds) as well as one opening in the Grandi PM class (4-5 year olds). Please email us if you are interested in being considered for one of these spots!
