As a tight-knit community of about 3,500 people, Brisbane is a great place to raise children. The community is committed to excellence in education for children of all ages. 

The City is active in encouraging schooling.  At the preschool level, there is a preschool that the City's Parks and Recreation Department manages.  It's located in Brisbane Elementary School.  Additionally, Silverspot Cooperative Nursery School is in a City owned building with a public playground - known as the Silverspot Tot Lot.

The Brisbane School District governs three schools: two elementary schools and one middle school. Brisbane Elementary and Lipman Middle School are located in Brisbane; Panorama Elementary is in Daly City.  Contact Superintendent Toni Presta in the District Office at (415) 467-0550 for more information.

At the high school level, Brisbane School District students are eligible to attend schools in the Jefferson Union High School District.  Residents have expressed interest in establishing a high school within the City, and planning for the Baylands has included discussions about a possible high school.  Meanwhile, Summit Public School: Shasta, a 9-12 school, will be opening in the fall of 2013 and serve students in the Jefferson Union High School District. They will be opening with a class of 100 ninth graders and add one grade per year.

Summit Shasta is now accepting applications. For questions about Summit Shasta or the application process, please contact:
