Mission Statement

San Francisco University High School welcomes students of demonstrated motivation and ability to engage in an education that fosters responsibility and the spirited pursuit of knowledge. We are a school where adults believe in the promise of every student, and together we work to build and sustain a community of diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and talents. UHS challenges each individual to live a life of integrity, inquiry, and purpose larger than the self.

About the School

At UHS, we believe that the deepest learning requires collaboration among people who embody a diversity of backgrounds, beliefs, experiences, and perspectives. In order to build and sustain a community that is comprised of a wide range of social and cultural identities, we must continually engage in furthering our self-knowledge, equity literacy, and ability to communicate effectively across differences. We challenge ourselves to do this work on both a personal and an institutional level, recognizing that our community is part of a larger and more complex world.

The School is a highly selective, independent, college-preparatory high school of 410 students is well-known for its challenging academic curriculum, broad array of arts opportunities as well as its comprehensive and competitive athletic program. Founded in 1973 and located in the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco, the school is set on a multi-building campus that stretches from the Presidio to California Street. UHS is governed by a twenty-six-member Board of Trustees and is supported by an endowment of over $30 million.

Twenty-four percent of the student body receives $3.2 million in financial aid and 50 percent of the student body self-identifies as students of color. Ninety-five middle schools are represented in our student body. Sixty-one faculty members (42% self-identify as people of color, 84 % with advanced degrees) and thirty-six staff and administration members bring a breadth and depth of talent and experience in their leadership of a school and program that continues to evolve to prepare students for our fast-paced and complex society.
