Frequently Asked Questions


How many students go to the school?
With over 500 students, Alamo is one of San Francisco’s largest elementary schools, yet it continues to provide an excellent environment for learning and development.
How does Alamo rank in testing?
Alamo students have consistently ranked well in standardized tests. See our scores. For more school data, please refer to our SFUSD website.
Why is there a PTA and a Foundation?
The PTA provides similar support to programs at Alamo as do other PTA organizations at other schools. The Foundation was created to provide a support organization to hire people to provide programs such as arts (ceramics, visual arts, physical education and choral music) which the San Francisco Unified School District does not provide.
Should we give to both the PTA and the Foundation?
Yes – the two organizations provide separate, complementary support to the students, teachers and staff of the school. It is important to provide both organizations with funding to continue this valuable support.
