WELCOME TO SAN RAFAEL CITY SCHOOLS
San Rafael City Schools includes the San Rafael Elementary School District and the San Rafael High School District, with a total student population of approximately 7,000. The two districts are governed by one school board and one district office administration. The district consists of 6 TK-5 schools, a TK-8 school, a middle school, two comprehensive high schools and a continuation high school.
Grounded in our vision for student success, we undertook an extensive journey with our greater community to develop our strategic plan - Together 2024. It describes our District values of equity, community and joy, as well as our culture, goals and strategic actions. The District's Graduate Profile articulates the skills needed to succeed in this rapidly changing world, and we committed to developing these skills so every student graduates ready to pursue their goals.
