Our Story » Welcome


Welcome to The Mission Preparatory School. As a diverse and passionate team of educators, we believe that an excellent education should be a reality for each and every one of our Prepsters. Together, with the support of our families, we collaborate to create a unique, rigorous, and engaging program that truly prepares our students to be both High School and College Ready. Serving 420 students in the heart of the Mission District of San Francisco, we work relentlessly each day to make our Every child. Every minute. Every day. vision come to life.

As we begin our 9th operational year, we are preparing for our founding class to launch the year as our first set of 8th graders. Our founders have and continue to model our PREP values and inspire us each day to innovate and improve our program. With our mission to ensure that they succeed in college and serve as leaders in their communities, we have created a Pathway to High School Program that provides support and guidance to our students and families throughout the High School application process. We are committed to fulfilling our mission and to celebrating the amazing success of our founders this year at their Promotion Ceremony in June of 2020.

As we launch the 2019-20 school year, we acknowledge the incredible work of all of our community members, including our students, our families, our staff, our School Board, and our supporters, who have contributed to the success of our school.

We are truly grateful for your enduring commitment and dedication to our mission!

Yours in education,

Kristine MacDonald

Executive Director
