The San Francisco City Center kicked off their summer tour series on June 28th with a tour of San Francisco’s LePort School, winner of the 2017 Give Award.  The tour was led by Rhea Butler and Gary Drew from Ware Malcomb, together with Erin Hennigan from LePort School.

LePort is a Montessori school serving children from 3 months through kindergarten.

Rhea, Gary and Erin led us through both playgrounds, one outdoor and one indoor, all the classrooms, each of which is unique, and the gardening room.  They explained the challenges they faced taking over a historical building, and also having to make adjustments when a tower went up on the adjacent site that blocked light and views.  They managed to create charming and inviting spaces for the children in spite of the obstacles and LePort is thrilled with their new school!  We had a lot of fun going through the spaces as well!

We would like to thank everyone who was able to join us, with a special thank you to Ware Malcomb for helping us organize the event, to LePort School for hosting us, and to our sponsor BCCI Construction for the treats!


We hope you will join us for our other tours this summer!  Register at
