The young people in our diverse community represent the promise of San Francisco and the Bay Area. We are committed to sparking a lifelong dialogue with every young person in the community about constantly seeking fresh ways to see, think, and engage with the world through art. Our commitment to education is an enduring pledge to foster creativity in the young people of San Francisco and help ensure innovation in the future of the Bay Area.

We also understand the critical importance of great teachers. Our plans include innovations in teacher training, and promotion of collaborative teaching.
