Make a Gift to Sand Hill School!

Why Give?

Together we can make a difference.

The Sand Hill School Annual Fund is a community effort to control tuition increases, provide student scholarships, and support the things that make SHS a place where your kids can thrive. That includes low teacher to student ratios along with continued evidence-based programming, arts, sports and so much more.

As with many non-profit, independent schools, tuition does not cover the operational costs of the school, and over 50% of our student population received some amount of financial assistance. It’s a major gap to be filled, but we can meet this challenge with full participation from families.

Please contact Cynthia Mei, Associate Director at or 650.688.3667 if you have any questions.

…now I know can succeed in my life.

I want to thank all of the people who gave me the opportunity to go to Sand Hill School. Because you helped me get through Sand Hill, and you have allowed me to achieve the goals I can achieve today. Sand Hill changed my life. I was at a school where no one really cared. When I transitioned to Sand Hill it was completely different. They had me set high goals and did not allow me to give up so easily… It was really life changing because now I know can succeed in my life. I have all of these opportunities just waiting for me.
