El Crystal School Site Back On The Block


Dear San Bruno Park Community,

As many of you may recall, in 2018 the San Bruno Park School District invited offers for the sale of the former El Crystal school site. 

Of the six offers, Stratford School, a private school organization which leases other properties from us, was the highest bidder.

Unfortunately, we are unable to complete the escrow as originally proposed.  

Stratford’s bids for the significant renovations required for this facility have come in much higher than Stratford had budgeted for, 

and the organization does not believe it makes financial sense for them to proceed at this time.


The Board of Education has taken action to cancel the escrow at this time.

In the new year, the Board will look at the district’s different disposition options for this site. 

We will keep you informed as to the decision-making process and timeline.

We will have additional information at a future time, but for now, we felt it was important to let you know immediately of this significant change.



Andrew Mason

President of the Board of Trustees
