Our Story

The LFSF was founded in 1967 by a group of parents and teachers. Just 10 years later, the first Class of LFSF seniors graduated.

In 1986, LFSF added its first North Bay primary campus, that was eventually moved to Sausalito in 2013

In 1996, LFSF acquired its Ashbury campus that originally welcomed primary and secondary students. 

In 2005, LFSF acquired its Ortega campus, another beautiful historical building on Ortega St @19th Ave.
