    The Urban School of San Francisco is an innovative, independent high school with a mission to ignite a passion for learning and to inspire our students to become self-motivated, enthusiastic participants in their education.


    We honor the uniqueness of each individual and seek students from diverse backgrounds in order to build a strong, inclusive community and prepare students for lives in a multicultural society. Urban has been at the forefront of educational excellence since our founding, pioneering innovations such as block scheduling, a nationally regarded service learning program and a 1:1 student laptop program. At Urban, our extraordinary teachers find the key to learning in every individual, while instilling a rigorous educational foundation to prepare them for college and beyond.

    At Urban, we believe high school should be a place where students discover the value of their minds and the excitement of learning. Both in and out of the classroom, locally and globally, we instill a consciousness of social justice, an ethic of citizenship and a commitment to service.
