"I've lived in West Portal, a San Francisco neighborhood, for over 5 years. I love all the friendly people and the small town vibes. We have a great Greek restaurant (Orexi) and an authentic and delicious Italian restaurant (Trattoria da Vittorio). We have lots of trees and grassy areas. Lots of families and people walking their dogs. We have a cinema if you would like to catch a movie, hair salons, nail salons. We have one of the best bakeries in the city, Noe Valley Bakery. With Muni, it's a quick trip to anywhere in the city."

"1-3 block walk to almost any retail or restaurant. 1 block to 2 muni streetcar lines that get you downtown or anywhere along market in 20 min or less. Very family and pet friendly with one of the best parks and probably the best dog park in the city 3 blocks away (Sigmund Stern). On street parking is one of the easiest in the city. Stonestown farmers market is top notch. You are 5-8 minutes from 280. SFO is a 15-20 minutes drive. "

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.
