San Francisco University High School opened in 1975 as a coeducational, college preparatory, independent secondary school. Enrollment stands at approximately 390 students this year.
UHS is a special community, well-known for its challenging academic offerings and intellectual vitality. Our classrooms are full of spirited debate; our labs are spaces for collaborative discovery; and our studios, stages, and playing fields are arenas where we create and compete with passion and purpose. We believe that a lively academic culture, while the foundation of our mission, represents only one facet of an extraordinary school. Strong student and faculty relationships, a culture of peer support, students assuming leadership in all aspects of school life, and active service in the community beyond our campus are essential aspects of the UHS experience. The standards we set for ourselves are high, but the benefits of those aspirations are limitless in a school that believes in the promise of every student.
