One of the most critical skills we hope our Town students learn is the ability to make informed decisions in the 21st century.  Whether through country studies in 1st grade or their work with KIVA in 6th grade with Ms. Goggin, whether by observing and experiencing the interconnectedness of San Francisco's neighborhoods in 2nd grade or in scholarly pursuits in Mr. Warner's 8th grade Global Economics class, Town School is committed to Global Education.
