"I visted my friend there. Love this location. Very close to Westportal where nice restaurants and shops are. Very safe area, too."

"Sherwood Forest on Mt. Davidson is remote, cab drivers seldom recognize the area. Quiet, peaceful, and friendly. Nearby Muni bus service. Closest neighborhood is West Portal, with Muni Metro access to rest of city. Nearby groceries, small shops, and restaurants are Mollie Stone's on Portola and Safeway on Monterey. Bengal Alley, a public right-of-way between Lansdale Avenue and Miraloma Way is being renovated and will be safe and beautiful, planted per Permaculture precepts with food, including fruit and berries, and habitat"

Miraloma Elementary School
- 391 Students
Parent Rating Average
Miraloma is a fabulous school. SFUSD puts handcuffs in so many ways on teachers - they are not allowed to provide differentiated learning, they have virtually zero funds for the classroom, there are almost no funds for non-academic activities (ie/gym, music, art), and the approach to bullying must be "restorative justice" which is ineffective but the school's hands are tied. The teachers here are caring and do the best they can for the students within the constraints of SFUSD, and the PTA does a fantastic job of raising funds to support a full time gym teacher, classroom needs, organic fruits and vegetables for snack, art, music, and more. The PTA community also generates a ton of parent volunteer hours to support those efforts as well. Finally, the new principal is bringing a new method of leadership to the school, which is a sound methodology, not usually found in schools, and so is a little uncomfortable for some.
