Welcome to Dolores Huerta Elementary

Dolores Huerta Elementary is a city-wide, Spanish dual immersion school serving around 400 students from Pre-K to 5th grade.

Dolores Huerta offers high academic standards, a diverse and engaged community, a strong Parent-Teacher Association (PTA), a commitment to social justice, and various enrichment programs, including arts, sciences, music, sports, gardening, and more. 

Community Day for Prospective Families

Please note that the community day that we had hoped to hold in January 2022 has been cancelled due to the Omicron surge. We will update this page if anything changes before applications are due. In the meantime, please join our virtual tour on January 18 at 5:30; details below.

The Dolores Huerta Elementary PTA is pleased to announce an in-person community day for prospective families on our school campus at 65 Chenery Street on Saturday, December 4, with two meetings from 10-11 am and 11-12 pm. Please come check us out! We can’t wait to meet you and share all the exciting things going on at DH. If you have questions, please contact ptaboard@wearedoloreshuerta.com. No need to RSVP, though if you can send us an email so we know how many people to expect, that would be appreciated. Thank you!

Virtual Tours for Prospective Families

We wish we could show prospective families our beautiful campus, energized students, vibrant Dolores Huerta community, and AMAZING teachers and staff with a normal in-person tour schedule, but district policies are still not allowing on-campus tours during the school day.

However, we are offering bilingual virtual tours led by Dolores Huerta parents and staff excited to show off our school on the following dates and times:

  • Wednesday November 17th @ 12:30-1:30pm
  • Thursday December 16th @ 9:00-10:00am
  • Tuesday January 18th @ 5:30pm-6:30pm

Please see this page for more details, including the Zoom links.

We also have this happy little video to get a flavor of the magic that awaits you and your child at Dolores Huerta Elementary in 2022-2023! We have so many exciting things happening at our school (like a new play structure for the upper grades and a $150K grant to green our schoolyard), and we can’t wait to meet you. For questions, please contact the school at huertaes@sfusd.edu or 415-695-5669 or PTA Board at ptaboard@wearedoloreshuerta.com.
