The Brisbane School District was, in 1859, part of the San Mateo School District No. 1. This included the later districts of San Mateo, Hillsborough, Millbrae, Rockaway, San Pedro, Jefferson, San Bruno, South San Francisco, Brisbane and Bayshore. 

In 1861, the original school district was divided into Jefferson and San Bruno Districts of today. The school district at that time was known as Visitation. 

The Visitation District was named from the Rancho Canada Guadalupe La Visitation Y Rodeo Viejo and the boundaries of the district were practically coterminous with those of the old rancho grant. 

In 1938-1939, the portion of the district now known as Bayshore was separated to form a new district, the remaining portion keeping the name of Visitation until 1940, when it took its present name of Brisbane. 

The Brisbane School District is located in the Northern section of San Mateo County and includes the majority of the San Bruno Mountain area. The district presently consists of the Brisbane School (1936), Lipman Middle School (1956), and the Panorama School (1963). 

The City of Brisbane has a population of approximately 3,500 people. It is situated on the eastern slope of San Bruno Mountain and is "sandwiched" between San Francisco on the north and South San Francisco to the south. 

The Brisbane School District also includes the Southern Hills neighborhood of Daly City. 


The Brisbane School District is located on the northeastern tip of San Mateo County, including Brisbane and parts of Daly City and South San Francisco.
