Lick-wilmerding High School

Tel: (415)333-4021
Lick-Wilmerding is a non-profit, independent, coeducational, college preparatory day school.
L-W's central mission is to offer its students a distinctive and exemplary education, the key ingredients of which are: the school's "head, heart, and hands" curriculum, the inclusive nature of its community, and its commitment to society beyond the campus.
Each of these elements is grounded in the principles set forth by the school's founders - James Lick, Jellis Wilmerding, and Miranda Lux.
From the beginning, Lick-Wilmerding served young people from all segments of society, honored work with the hands as well as the head, and committed to contributing to the common good.
Lick-Wilmerding High School inspires students to become self-directed, life-long learners who contribute to our world with knowledge, skill, creativity, compassion, and can-do confidence.
