Since our inception, The Presentation School has made an overwhelming effort in the area of global responsibility. In any of our efforts to help those in need, our students have been enriched by the lessons planned by their teachers about the people, the culture, the politics, and the history of each of these locations.
Currently, Presentation School is committed to help stamping out hunger through partnership with Redwood Empire Food Bank, St. Leo’s Thanksgiving Baskets, the Heifer Project, and annual participation in World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine.
Teachers weave service into their curriculum to allow for authentic learning experiences, which include the choir Christmas caroling in local retirement and rest homes, lunch service at Glide Memorial, beach clean up, and tech class sponsored E Waste drives.

They design a display poster, develop a research paper, complete at 10 hours of service, create a portfolio, and finally, present their completed project to a panel in May. Past service projects have included:
