Academics at Middle School of the Arts

San Francisco High School of the Arts offers a rigorous academic program for middle school students from grades 6 to 8. Our academic program emphasizes five areas of study: English, Social Studies, Math, Sciences, and Chinese. Small class sizes facilitate a seminar-style engagement in the humanities. We have a great team of teachers with strong and diversified backgrounds, who are dedicated to inspiring and supporting students in all their endeavors.


Our supportive and family-like environment motivates students to learn. In addition, our small average class size allows students to receive individualized attention. Through hard work, dedication, and the help of caring instructors and peers, our students grow to become responsible young adults.

A Bilingual Program

The San Francisco High School of the Arts strongly promotes bilingual development in English and Mandarin Chinese, two of the most widely spoken languages in the world. Our Chinese Language & Culture program is literature-based, and takes students from entry-level Chinese, all the way up to being able to interpret advanced classical texts and poetry. Through successful development of oral fluency and literacy in Chinese, 90% of our students pass the AP Chinese Exam before graduation.

Improved Academia via Traditional Arts

Research has proven that training in traditional arts not only facilitates character building in young adults, but also improves their capabilities in academic learning. Through mastering the arts, our students become more focused and self-disciplined, and naturally develop good study habits that enhance their academic efficiency.



“舊金山藝術高中太棒了。老師和工作人員的奉獻精神是超乎尋常的。他們確實關心整個孩子,並在需要時採取行動。我們的孩子去過的大多數學校都經常“談論”他們的價值觀。 SF 藝術高中有。它使世界變得不同。強烈推薦。”
