Welcome to the 2016-17 School Year "Tour Season!" At James Lick, we conduct school tours every Monday, beginning the first week in November and conclude in January before the first round of applications are due. We welcome you and your child to participate. Meet in the office area by 9am as the tours begin shortly after that hour. You can expect to be on the tour for about one hour. No appointment is needed, simply show up and be prepared to participate. We encourage you to have your questions ready as the final part of the tour is a Q&A session with the principal. We look forward to seeing you here!

Congratulations to Ms. Dalmau - National Board Certification

James Lick Middle School community! Help me congratulate our very own school counselor, Ms. Gladys Dalmau on her successful achievement in earning her National Board Certification. On 2/9/16, the SFUSD Board of Education held a ceremony to honor all of the hard work put forth by our professionals to earn this prestigious achievement. National Board Certification is often heard as the "PhD" of teaching and requires a lot of work, commitment and dedication on behalf of the teacher/counselor. We are very proud of Ms. Dalmau and honored to have her as a Nationally Board Certified counselor at Lick. Felicidades Ms. Dalmau!   -Principal Quesada

All students and parents should use the crosswalks when crossing the street. Be aware of traffic around the school.  Students should be dropped off at the white zone on Noe Street.  There are crossing guards at Clipper and Noe as well as Castro and 25th Street.  Cars parked in the white zone on Noe Street will be ticketed by SF DPT as this is a drop off only zone.

Tip: there is less traffic around the school at 8:15 am vs 8:25 am.
