Drew knows and believes in teenagers.  We engage each student in a process of intellectual discovery to develop an individual voice, the confidence to express it, and the empathy to understand its impact.
The Drew community is one that challenges the traditional definition of success and celebrates achievement one student at a time.
The result is that our students develop into fascinating individuals who are sought after by colleges and who know themselves well when they step out into the world.
As you engage in Drew's demanding academic program alongside 294 other students from across the Bay Area, you'll experience firsthand the Drew Dynamic: five core beliefs that shape day-to-day life at Drew and set the stage for your exploration of academics, the arts, athletics, languages, technology, social equity and inclusion-wherever your passions may lie.

School Notes

  • Teenagers need a second home. In these busy times more than ever, students need a safe haven away from home. Happily, many Drew students see Drew as their second home. Our warm, inviting community and state of the art campus has become a place where students arrive early, stay late, and find their community.
  • Society defines success too narrowly. High school is precisely the time for you to discover who you are and who you might become among a community of students and adults who enthusiastically embrace each individual.
  • High school should not be a race to college. The high school years can and should be among the best years of your life. Drew students experience their education in a hands-on manner in their classes, relationships, and activities. Our college preparatory program is designed to open students` minds to possibilities, emphasizing discovery throughout the journey.
  • Relationships matter. The value of belonging and of meaningful relationships leads to empowerment, confidence to take risks, enriched learning, and increased accountability. Drew is an intentionally small high school where students are afforded close relationships with their teachers and peers. It is the reliability and depth of these relationships that push Drew students to greatness.
  • All learners are diverse learners. No two students learn in the same way. Drew is a leader in understanding those differences and designing a college preparatory curriculum that is as rich in content as it is diverse in its implementation. Every student at Drew benefits from our deep understanding of the teenage brain.
