San Francisco High School of the Arts offers a rigorous academic program for middle school and high school students from grades 6 to 12. The curriculum focuses on application of knowledge gained from solid theoretical understanding. We have a great team of teachers with strong and diversified backgrounds, who are dedicated to inspiring and supporting students in all their endeavors.
In addition to training in traditional arts, we provide students with a rigorous, college-preparatory program that includes academic coursework, advising, counseling, and standardized test prep.
Our academic program emphasizes five areas of study: English, History, Math, Sciences, and Chinese. Small class sizes facilitate a seminar-style engagement in the humanities, while independent study is available in all major subjects.
