Our Work at Presidio Knolls School

Presidio Knolls School is a Mandarin immersion school serving students from pre-K through 7th grade in San Francisco, CA.

My ongoing engagement with PKS is focused on strategic consulting with the Head of School, the Board of Trustees Development Committee, and key members of the staff. Having just completed a major capital campaign resulting in a new building, the school is now working to build an ongoing advancement program that is based on best practices and stewardship and is designed to create a deep culture of giving and engagement.


"As a young and rapidly growing school, Barbara's guidance, wisdom, and insights have been invaluable to us. She quickly grasped our school culture and dynamics, and ensured that our mission and values continue to drive our decision-making. Her inspiring leadership and sage advice have been critical elements to our success and ongoing evolution from a start-up school to an educational institution, and we look forward to continuing to working closely with her. She is a consistently strategic thinker who has helped us professionalize our practice and both envision and actualize a very bright future for our school."
