Help Prevent Child Abuse
Child Abuse Prevention Month is a call to action to protect our most vulnerable community members: children. New data shows that child abuse costs the Bay Area xx. The impact of child abuse extends beyond the financial burden; it changes the trajectory of a child’s life. Victims of child abuse are more likely to fall into the criminal justice system, poverty, teen pregnancy, joblessness — this hurts the victim and costs the entire Bay Area community. It’s time for every community member to come together to protect kids and cut the cost to our communities. During the month of April, join us, and do your part: raise awareness, help your neighbors, and prevent child abuse.
3 Ways You Can Prevent Child Abuse
1. Reach Out
2. Be Aware
Know the signs of abuse.
Teach the children in your life know how to stay safe.
3. Always Report Suspected Abuse

Quote #1:– “We are grateful to be part of the E.R. Taylor community! The teachers, staff, parents and students are all dedicated to providing positive learning experiences for everyone. For the past three years, my sons have grown academically, socially, and emotionally as students of E.R. Taylor. What warms my heart the most is seeing how happy my sons are to attend school every day. We do not take for granted the tireless work and dedication of everyone involved that has made E.R. Taylor a great school. My sons have made memories heare that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.” E.R. Taylor parent
Quote #2:–“I love working here because of the richness and diversity of our student population. It is a happy and safe place for kids. I love the large size of the school because of all the things it has to offer.” E.R. Taylor staff member
Quote #3: “E.R. Taylor has been a family to me since 1983. I was the first Special Day Class teacher at the school. The staff was remarkable. What I really liked was that we were all supportive of each other, and that was kept me in the Special Day Class for 14 years. When the school became a Consent Decree school in 1986---that was when we became a team. We had a Language Arts Room and a Science Lab. We got involved in grant writing. During Oceans Week we had a Flashy Trashy Fashion Show.” Former E.R. Taylor staff member
E.R. Taylor Elementary School is a Pre-Kindergarten through 5th Grade public school located in the southeastern corner of San Francisco, California, in the Portola neighborhood. 695 students currently attend E.R. Taylor. In 1975, students in grades 1-5 were relocated to Treasure Island while the school buildings were retro-fitted to be earthquake safe; E.R. Taylor Kindergarten students attended school at Hillcrest Elementary during that time. It was renovated again in the 1980s. Our school building was most recently renovated during the 2008-2009 School Year. E.R. Taylor is located at 423 Burrows Street, and occupies an entire city block, bordered by Goettingen, Bacon, Burrows and Somerset Streets.
In 1923, E.R. Taylor was named after Edward Robeson Taylor, the 28th Mayor of San Francisco, serving from July 16, 1907 to January 7, 1910. He was a lawyer and a poet in California before he became mayor, publishing an 1898 book of sonnets based on the paintings of William Keith. Edward Robeson Taylor was appointed mayor due to the resignation of Charles Boxton, after his eight-day term. When Taylor was sworn in, he became the oldest mayor of San Francisco to be sworn in at 68 years old and still currently holds the record today. He died in San Francisco on July 5, 1923. His remains are housed at the San Francisco Columbarium. The political economist Henry George credits Taylor for influencing his work on Progress and Poverty, one of the most popular and influential books in American history.[
On November 18, 1976, E.R. Taylor celebrated an Open House, which included a Children’s Program. Participants were able to tour the new facility after it had been retrofitted.
In 2000, E.R. Taylor celebrated the 75th anniversary of the school by having student presentations in the yard. Students, staff, community members and district office personnel participated in the event.
During the 1999-2000 school year, students at the school read a total of one thousand books; there was a giant worm that snaked around the school.
Many of our current students have parents who also attended the school. Some of our veteran teachers have had the opportunity to teach two different generations of students from the same family. The school currently offers a Cantonese Biliteracy Program, a Spanish Biliteracy Program, the English Plus Program, the SOAR Program and a Pre-Kindergarten program. We value the multicultural and ethnic diversity that comprises our school population.
