Our School


Frank McCoppin Elementary School has a culturally diverse student body, with many English Language Learners. Our comprehensive curriculum stresses academic excellence. We believe equity and social justice are achieved when all students are taught with the same attention to their specific needs. We deliver this individualized attention through our diverse support staff of two paraprofessionals, a speech clinician, a school psychologist, a social worker, and an instrumental-music teacher. Additionally, we welcome student observers/participants from SFSU, USF, and other volunteers to assist our students. The current principal has been at McCoppin for eight years. As a testament to the community we have built here, the majority of the volunteers are retired McCoppin teachers returning to share their expertise, creativity, and knowledge.

We foster intellectual curiosity and connect with students' interests and daily experiences in a safe, positive, welcoming, inclusive, and respectful learning environment. We provide differentiated instruction to meet student needs. Music, Drama, Visual Arts, Poetry, Dance, and Gardening programs further enhance students' educational experience at McCoppin. Students also participate in science projects through UCSF's Science in Education Partnership (SEP). We believe that increasing communication and involvement with students' families will help us succeed in our promises to our students and their families.
