The Urban School Of San Francisco

Tel: (415)626-2919
Grades: 9-12 | 375 students
The Urban School has been at the forefront of educational excellence since our founding in 1966, pioneering innovations such as block scheduling, a nationally regarded community service 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.
The Urban School of San Francisco seeks to ignite a passion for learning, inspiring its students to become self-motivated, enthusiastic participants in their education—both in high school and beyond.
Urban believes that high school is an important experience in its own right, not merely a stepping stone to college, and we aim to educate the whole student through a broad and rich academic and co-curricular program balancing the intellectual, artistic, physical, emotional and social development of each student.
