With its green parks, innovative museums, and outdoor fun, San Francisco is a great place to live for families. Our school is located in one of the most prominent neighborhoods of San Francisco, the Richmond district. It is situated between a world-famous historical Presidio of San Francisco (north) and Golden Gate Park (south). With the Pacific Ocean on its west, the Richmond is known for its weather due to the fresh winds blowing from the ocean, so our students appreciate unpolluted air every day they go to school. The ocean beach is several blocks away from school and it makes it a pleasant trip for families to enjoy. The Richmond District also has deep Irish and Russian roots and has many Catholic and Orthodox churches.

Our school is just minutes away from Sutro Heights Park, Golden Gate Park and many playgrounds. The Cabrillo playground, often visited by our students, boasts tennis and basketball courts, as well as play structures. Our students are lucky to stay close to many major parks in the Richmond, including Lincoln Park and Golf Course in the Outer Richmond which also contains the California Palace of the Legion of Honor and California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park
Downtown San Francisco is less than 15 minutes’ drive from our school building, which makes it convenient to parents who work there to take their children to school every day.

Russian American School is now San Francisco Pacific Academy
